US: The Marriott TownePlace Suites Albuquerque Old Town has opened its doors, close to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.

Each of the hotel's 92 rooms has a fully equipped kitchen, said Emily Howard, vice president of corporate strategy for owner Indian Pueblos Marketing Inc. and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. "We're hoping to attract both business travellers as well as leisure travellers," Howard said.

The extended stay hotel is the second on the campus, joining a Holiday Inn Express that recently underwent a $2 million renovation.

The project broke ground in November 2018. Colorado-based The Wright Group and Albuquerque-based Peter Butterfield Architecture built and designed the project respectively.

Albuquerque-based Sun Capital Hotels is managing the property, which expected to create 75 construction jobs and more than 20 operational jobs upon opening.

New Mexico-based Indian Pueblos Marketing owns and develops land around the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Indian Pueblos Marketing, which was founded in 1976, employs 216 in New Mexico, according to Albuquerque Business First's List of largest American Indian-owned businesses.
