High Hotels begins expansion and upgrade of Homewood Suites by Hilton - Reading, Pa.

Lancaster, Pa. – In keeping with the latest hospitality trends and standards and to meet market demand, High Hotels, Ltd., today announced it has begun expansion and upgrade of its Homewood Suites by Hilton – Reading, located at 2801 Papermill Road, Wyomissing, Pa.

The project will include construction of 32 additional suites including four whirlpool suites with gas fireplaces and luxury multiple-head showers.

The hotel, which currently features 87 one- and two-bedroom suites, will grow to 119 suites by June of 2007, the target date for completion. High Construction is serving as general contractor for, and Greenfield Architects designed, the expansion project.

Frank McCabe, president, High Hotels, said the expansion will help meet local demand for this category of upscale, all-suite residential style accommodations. "We often are at maximum capacity at this hotel and, upon completion of this expansion, will be able to offer additional high-end accommodations," explained McCabe. "We're pleased with the encouraging changes we've observed in the Reading area and believe this expansion will contribute to positive growth trends here."

The expansion also will include the addition of a covered sun porch to the lobby area, providing additional breakfast seating. Kitchen enhancements in the new suites will include granite countertops. All new suites, and eventually all existing suites, will feature the new Distinctly Homewood™ all-washable bedding package including the Serta Suite Dreams mattress. 

"Our guests generally stay for a few nights or longer, so creating a home-like experience, including an ultra-comfortable bed, is important," said Joann Iacono, general manager, Homewood Suites - Reading. "Restful sleep is essential to our guests' comfort, productivity and well-being, and we are thrilled that we will be able to deliver the new Distinctly Homewood™ sleep experience in our 32 new suites, and eventually in all 119 suites."
