Hilton Garden Inn & Homewood Suites hotel and conference center



After nearly one year of preconstruction activities and approvals, Frampton Construction is set to begin work on the Hilton Garden Inn & Homewood Suites hotel and conference center in Summerville, S.C. The 208,828 square foot project will sit on 6.1 acres within the Nexton community, at the corner of Sigma Drive and Edge Street.

Once complete, the hotel, an eight-story post-tensioned concrete structure, will be the tallest building in Summerville and Berkeley County, measuring 93 feet in height. The first floor will feature a lobby, bar, gas fireplace, water feature, business center, workout facility, and administrative offices. Floors two through eight will feature 250 Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites hotel rooms, separated by elevator lobbies on each floor.

A two-story, 36,000 square foot conference center will be connected to the hotel. The structural steel building is designed to include a back entryway suited for vehicle access and over 7,000 square feet of uninterrupted space on the first floor, large enough to showcase automobiles. Folding walls will allow this larger area to be separated into three smaller conference rooms. Six additional meeting rooms will be located on the second floor for a total of 13,000 square feet of meeting capacity, fulfilling a significant need for conference space in the Summerville area. 

The dual-brand concept caters to both select service and extended stay hotel customers through one property by pairing two distinctly branded hotels under the same roof while consolidating guest amenity spaces and back-of-house-operations for maximum efficiency.

Early in the planning process, Lowcountry Hotels selected and aligned Frampton Construction with designer Bounds, Gillespie, Killebrew, Tushek Architects, PLLC, to assist and consult on schedule and budget strategies. Construction is expected to be completed in February of 2020.
