Redlands Approves a New 88-room Hotel
By Jennifer Iyer
The Redlands Planning Commission approved another hotel project this year, giving the go-ahead to an 88-room Springhill Suites by Marriott.
Other hotels approved by the commission in 2018 are the 77-room Home2 Suites by Hilton, planned for 1340 Industrial Park Ave., and the 123-room WoodSpring Suites hotel set for 1700 Orange Tree Lane.
The newest project, planned for the south side of West Lugonia Avenue, about 650 feet east of Nevada Street, was approved Dec. 11 with some minor changes to the facade color and materials. It had been in front of the commission in November, but was continued when commissioners had requested several changes to architecture, finishes and colors.
The main complaint then was that the dark front facade popouts resembled giant TV screens. Since then the features were changed to lighter beige colors, which would contrast less with the rest of the building.
There are 46 hotels in the works in San Bernardino County, and regionally 472 are in some stage of development, according to Atlas Hospitality’s first-half summary of the hotel construction scene.
