Three new hotels are headed for Spartanburg County.

Home2 Suites, an extended-stay concept by Hilton Worldwide, will be constructed on nearly 7 acres in Duncan behind the site of the future Fuddruckers and Starbucks development at 1515 Highway 290.

Spartanburg-based developer Pinnacle Hospitality has already announced its plan to build a 105-room Residence Inn by Marriott on 7.6 acres behind the Hampton Inn and Summit Pointe Conference and Events Center off Spartan Boulevard next to Costco and WestGate Mall.

Site plans filed with the county showed Pinnacle has sweetened the deal by adding a four-story, 116-room Hilton Garden that will be built on more than 6 acres adjacent to Summit Pointe.

“We could not be happier about this,” said Chris Jennings, executive vice president of the Spartanburg Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Last weekend, we hosted two major youth sports events that attracted thousands of visitors. And we had major overflow to Greenville County. We are bidding on NCAA sporting events through 2022 that would require us to have a larger inventory of hotel rooms … We will be happy to take them on and help build them up.”

Innkeeper Motor Lodge West Inc., based in Winston-Salem, N.C., will build Home2 Suites, according to site plans.

A company official could not be reached for comment on Friday.

The hotel’s site plan did not specify how many rooms will be included in the Duncan property, but it did show the hotel will have 152 parking spaces.

Pinnacle Hospitality officials were also unavailable for comment Friday.

A 10-story AC Hotel by Marriott with more than 100 rooms is under construction at the intersection of Daniel Morgan Avenue and West Main Street across from the RJ Rockers brewery in downtown Spartanburg.

The hotel, a joint venture between Spartanburg businessman George Dean Johnson Jr. and Spartanburg-based OTO Development, will open in 2017.

In June, crews completed the foundation work and placed the large tower crane that will be used to complete the upper floors of the hotel. The first two floors were visible from street level Friday.
