Home 2 hotel in North Natomas
HRGA's hotel project in North Natomas was featured in Business Journal.
After a few quiet years when the Covid-19 pandemic limited travel, North Natomas is again seeing a flurry of hotel proposals.
The newest one, at 4580 Duckhorn Drive, would be a four-story, 132-room Home2 Suites, on empty land visible from nearby Interstate 5. A development plan filed by the city doesn't include the proposed developer, but the property itself is owned by Vasilj, with an address in Roseville, according to real estate information service Reonomy. The apparent owner could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
According to the development plan, the Home2 Suites, a Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HLT) brand, would be about 70,000 square feet with its primary entrance facing south, toward Duckhorn.
Rooms would consist of 89 king studios, four king with one bedroom, 32 queen rooms, one accessible king studio, two accessible queen rooms and four accessible king rooms with one bedroom. Sizes range from 587 to 344 square feet. Layouts in the plans show relatively few amenities for the hotel, though there would be a fitness center, outdoor pool and small market, as well as what appears to be a small kitchen and food prep area. The lobby appears to show seated areas for a meal. There would be 129 parking stalls, including 51 either with electric vehicle charging capability or capable of adding chargers.
HRGA is the project architect.
Records show the current owner has owned the property for at least seven years.
About a mile west of the proposed Home2 Suites, a new Hyatt Place and House hotel, with about 200 rooms, opened earlier this year at 4850 Duckhorn. The city has also received a proposal for a new 116-room Holiday Inn on Promenade Circle in North Natomas, an updated version of a previously proposed hotel.
Such hotels not only serve nearby Sacramento International Airport traffic, but the increasing commercial development in Metro Air Park between the city and the airport.
