Hampton Inn Groundbreaking Ceremony
WARROAD, Minn. – Oct 22, 2019 — What began as an idea in the fall of 2018 in conjunction with the WCD LLC (Warroad Community Development) and the Discovery and Development Hub, local entrepreneurs turned those discussions into action.
Project founders, Drew Parsley of Warroad and Jon Waibel of Baudette, along with project developer, JLJ Management LLC, officially broke ground on a Hampton Inn by Hilton, scheduled to open the Fall of 2020. In attendance were local supporters, including City of Warroad Mayor, Bob Marvin & State Representative, Dan Fabian, among other project officials.
The hotel project is designed to enhance the business community, highlight the city’s geographic location on Lake of the Woods, area natural resources and outdoor recreation, attract new hockey tournaments and work to improve the quality of life in Warroad and ultimately, the growth and sustainability of Warroad and regional economies.
The custom hotel will include an enlarged pool area, kiddie pool including play structures, fitness center, two story pool roof top patio, open ceiling lobby, large breakfast area, lobby bar, hockey room, state of the art audio visual conferencing systems among other unique guest amenities all part of the thoughtful design.
The project is well positioned to attract additional business meetings, sporting events and grow area tourism visits that would normally not stay in the region.
“Thanks to the Warroad Community Development team led by Cyndy Renfrow in partnership with the City of Warroad, the project was made possible,” said Drew Parsley, Project Founder.
The new WHD LLC hotel project represents another flagship project in the execution of the Warroad community vision.
