PHOENIX — A national hotel chain has broken ground on a new extended-stay development in Mesa that is expected to open next fall.

Hilton began construction Wednesday on a Home2 Suites near the Loop 202 and Recker Road, the city announced in a press release.

The four-story, 64,000-square-foot hotel is scheduled to open in November 2020.

“Home2 Suites by Hilton Mesa Longbow is a great addition to the area and another sign of the growing success of the Falcon District,” Mayor John Giles said in the release. “Travelers visiting Mesa for business or pleasure will have a convenient place to stay with easy freeway access just a few miles from Falcon Field Airport.”

The hotel will have 111 suites,  all equipped with kitchens.

It will also offer amenities such as a business center, pool and free Wi-Fi.

The hotel’s location is eight minutes from Falcon Field and 20 minutes from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

Home2 Suites has more than 290 properties across the United States.
