HughE Dillon One-Shot: Hilton Breaks Ground in Center City

The new Home2 Suites will be at 12th and Arch streets.

Last week, I attended the groundbreaking ceremony for a new hotel that will be across the street from the Pennsylvania Convention Center at 12th and Arch streets. Home2 Suites by Hilton will have 246 guest rooms, more than 2,000 square feet of meeting space, and 9,750 square feet for ground-floor retail and restaurants. The property is being developed jointly by the Parkway Corporation and Wurzak Hotel Group.

Look for a summer 2013 opening.
