Correction: An earlier version of this story should have said the new SpringHill Suites by Marriott is owned by J Street Hospitality, based in San Diego, and Westar Associates, based in Costa Mesa.
Atascadero is home to a new hotel, SpringHill Suites by Marriott.
The 130-room all-suite hotel project, which opened for business June 11, cost about $25 million to $35 million.
It features an on-site restaurant, Union & Vine; about 4,000 square feet of indoor meeting space; about 1,000 square feet of outdoor space suitable for weddings or rehearsal dinners; and a 1,500-square-foot grand lobby/foyer area.
Average rates range from $159 a night during the week to $259 a night on weekends.
The franchise hotel at 900 El Camino Real is one of the flagship SpringHill Suites out of 327 nationwide, said Michael Wambolt, director of sales for SpringHill Suites by Marriott.
The owners, J Street Hospitality, based in San Diego, and Westar Associates, based in Costa Mesa, “saw great growth potential in the North County,” Wambolt said.
“It’s an opportunity to add a great feature to San Luis Obispo County with its location in wine country.”
The hotel employs about 40 people full time but is looking to add 15 more when it becomes fully operational, Wambolt said.
