Sycamore Investment Group will soon begin construction on a Home2 Suites by Hilton in Viera.

The four-story extended-stay hotel will have 118 suites, Sycamore said, and it will be located across the street from The Avenue Viera. The Home2 Suites will be adjacent to a Fairfield Inn and Suites, also developed by the investment group, and will sit at the intersection of Lake Andrew Drive and Town Center Avenue.

Sycamore Executive Vice President Ronak Jasani said the Home2 Suites is slated to open in the second quarter of 2020.

A release from Sycamore also noted that the company owns and operates the Hampton Inn, located at 130 Sheriff Drive in Viera.

Home2 Suites by Hilton will be an all-suite, extended-stay hotel, according to Sycamore. All rooms will include a kitchenette to create a home-like environment perfect for corporate travelers and families visiting for several days or weeks.

According to Sycamore, it will feature a patio and pool area along with outdoor seating and grills. Additionally, the hotel will offer a free breakfast, internet access and a fitness center.

“Home2 Suites is the only extended stay hotel in the market that offers suites with cooking facilities so guests can grill outside or prepare something in their room if they don’t want to go out,” said Jasani in an e-mail. “There’s tons of choices across the street to eat and drink if they wish to go out. Each suite is spacious, so it’s perfect for a family with kids or guests staying long term who wish to have more space. We do have an eatery downstairs that serves breakfast. We’ll also have a suite shop that sells alcohol, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks.”

Todd Pokrywa, president of the Viera Company, noted that the construction of the hotel was part of the process of the area’s planned development.

“Last year, we were pleased to see the first elements of the mixed use Viera Town Center open in the heart of Viera,” said Pokrywa in a news release. “With each new component, Viera Town Center makes another step in the process of becoming the essential gathering place that provides high-quality lodging, food and entertainment in a convenient and walkable area.

“The Viera Company has allowed the Viera Town Center to grow organically by first creating the critical mass of residents who will drive demand for the planned restaurants and retail components that are critical to its success.”
