Groundbreaking Lowcountry Hospitality: Hilton Garden Inn/Homewood Suites and Lowcountry Event & Conference Center at Nexton
Doing business in Summerville is about to get even better. Nexton, the region’s newest major employment hub, is soon-to-be home to two new hotels and Summerville's only Conference Center, bringing more tourism, events and jobs to the area.
Locountry Hotels selected Nexton as the site of their latest project to meet the demand of business and leisure travelers. “There is no question Nexton is ideally situated near leading employers and attractions,” said Scott Fennell, president of Lowcountry Hotels.
A new place to stay
The new Hilton Garden Inn will be a welcoming landing place for leisure and business travelers, while the Homewood Suites will give the extended stay traveler a true home-away-from-home with a living room, full kitchen area, and plenty of space to stretch out. The two will share a spacious, welcoming lobby, full-service restaurant, resort style pool, outdoor putting green, multiple outdoor green spaces, fire pit, patio with gas grill, extended boardroom, fitness center, business center, and free guest laundry services.
The dual-brand concept caters to traditional and extended stay guests by pairing two distinct brands under the same roof to consolidate guest amenity spaces and back-of-house-operations for maximum efficiency.
A new place to gather
As the first and largest building of its kind in the Summerville area, the adjoining Lowcountry Event & Conference Center will be a beacon for conferences, corporate meetings and events, trade shows, parties, and everything in between. The two-story conference center will feature 14,000 square feet of versatile ballroom and event space, offering a full event planning and catering staff. The first floor has 7,000 square feet of uninterrupted space in addition to folding walls that allow the area to be separated into three smaller conference rooms. The space offers a back entryway suited for automobile access to serve the area’s growing automobile manufacturing facilities. Six additional meeting rooms and ballrooms will be located on the second floor. On-site audio and visual staff will ensure a smooth event, while a full-service catering department will keep guests happy.
The 8-story, 208,828 square foot project is expected to be complete in early 2020.
