Hilton Hampton Inn proposed for township

A four-story Hampton Inn by Hilton has been proposed for the Village of Bloomfield in Bloomfield Township, which is the former Bloomfield Park property on Telegraph north of Square Lake Road.

Patti Voelker, township planning, building and ordinance director, said Great Lakes Hospitality Group of Bloomfield Hills submitted the application to build and manage the Hampton Inn hotel, which will be designed to cater to a business clientele. If approved, it will be situated at the rear and a little to the north of the remaining parking structure, Voelker said, on the approximately 95-acre site.

The proposed Hampton Inn would be approximately 65,000 square feet with 101 rooms, a lobby, breakfast area but no separate restaurant, a meeting area and an indoor pool. The exterior will be designed to fit in with the township, with stone, brick, textured cast stone walkways, and architectural features on all elevations, “and with all of the compliances in the development provisions,” Voelker said.

The Village of Bloomfield is overseen by a Joint Development Committee comprised of Bloomfield Township, Pontiac and a representative for Oakland County, and Voelker said the owners of Great Lakes Hospitality, Dennis Evans and Mike Bacall, intend to comply with the development agreement of the Joint Development Committee.

The Joint Development commission acts as the planning committee for Village of Bloomfield, Voelker said, granting all final approvals, and the hotel will not come before the township planning board, board of trustees, nor any Pontiac commissions for further approvals. It is scheduled to come before the Joint Development Committee on Wednesday, November 15, at Township Hall in Bloomfield Township.

“I think it will do well in that location,” Voelker said.

Great Lakes Hospitality has six other Hampton Inns by Hilton in metro Detroit, including Commerce Township; Shelby Township; West Bloomfield; Dearborn; and two in Auburn Hills. They also have TownePlace Suites by Marriott, Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Staybridge Suites, Comfort Inn, and Quality Inn and Suites.
