Hilton has broken ground on its first Project H3 hotel in Kokomo, Indiana, its first of the apartment-style extended-stay brand.
Let’s take a look at the new project.
Project H3 Coming to Indiana Next Year
The 137-room property will have outdoor patios with grills, a communal fire pit, studio-style living with a full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, 2-burner cooktop, and laundry services.
Kokomo is a small city in central Indiana, about an hour’s drive north of Indianapolis.
The hotel is expected to open to guests by the summer of 2024, though no exact opening date was given.
“This game-changing brand was created specifically to address the needs of guests who seek accessible quality in a long-stay hotel and provide owners with a cost-effective extended-stay hotel to build and operate,” said Matt Schuyler, Chief Brand Officer at Hilton.
Earlier this year, we reported that Hilton was planting its flag in the extended-stay market with the debut of the yet-to-be-named Project H3.
These hotels, Hilton says, will focus on the underserved segment of travelers — particularly those who aren’t solely traveling for leisure purposes. Its target demographic includes traveling nurses, military personnel, or those who may be relocating temporarily for work and want a comfortable but simple place to stay.
Project H3 hotels will differ from Hilton’s other brands because they will focus on long-term guests who have different needs from shorter-term travelers. Project H3 hotels will offer apartment-style living, a non-traditional lobby experience that will offer laundry services, meeting spaces, and more.
We don’t know how Hilton will price Project H3 hotels in cash or Hilton Honors points, but we expect they’ll be at a comfortable and affordable price.
While we wait for this hotel to open, you have many options if you’re interested in earning Hilton Honors points. One of the easiest ways is by opening a co-branded credit card, as Hilton offers several with big welcome offers. You can also transfer points from American Express, take a ride with Lyft, or eat out with Hilton Honors Dining.
Hilton has finally broken ground on the first Project H3 brand, coming to Indiana next year. While we don’t know much about the hotel, it’s a positive sign that Hilton expects to complete it by next summer, a strong indicator that other hotels will soon follow!
