New UpTown Suites hotel coming to Concord

InTown Suites plans to break ground later this month on a new hotel in Concord.

The extended stay property on Commons Park Circle will be InTown’s first UpTown Suites, a more upscale take on its main brand. Groundbreaking is scheduled for Jan. 29.

“This product will be more upscale than InTown properties and appeal to a broad mix of business travelers, contract workers, families in transition and vacationers,” said Collier Daily, vice president of sales and marketing for Atlanta-based InTown Suites.

The Concord site is just off Interestate 85, near Exit 49 and Concord Mills. A cluster of hotels, including Springhill Suites, Holiday Inn Express & Suites and a Hilton Garden Inn, are located nearby off Bruton Smith Boulevard.
