Holiday Inn Express Ground Breaking

Approximately 80 people attended the ground breaking ceremony held Monday (July 1) to celebrate the beginning of construction on the newest hotel in downtown Suisun City. The new Holiday Inn Express, located at 355 Civic Center Blvd., is expected to take around 14 months to finish construction, and should be completed by the end of next summer.

City Manager, Greg Folsom, Mayor Lori Wilson, Supervisor Jim Spering, and the project developer, Camran Nojoomi, each discussed the impact and importance of this project to the future of Suisun City as a part of the ceremony.

“The new Holiday Inn Express will be a 57,00 square foot, four-story building, with 83 rooms, an indoor pool, a fitness center, two meeting rooms and many other amenities,” said City Manager Greg Folsom. “This project is a catalyst project that will help to drive future development downtown.”

“This is the first of many projects that we hope to have in downtown Suisun City,” said Mayor Lori Wilson. “I hope to have four or five gold shovels on the wall by the end of my first term as Mayor.”
