Located on a unique L-shaped site in Downtown Glendale, the Hampton Inn and Suites includes 94 guest rooms with one basement parking level and five stories above grade.  The hotel lobby provides an inviting entrance for guests and visitors along Colorado Street by engaging the sidewalk and encouraging the use of a café seating area which links guests to a neighboring hotel.  This project continues the redevelopment transformation of city’s downtown area and supports the adjacent Americana mixed-use project as a regional destination.  The use of brick, stucco, metal, and glass reinforces the urban and commercial uses in the area, while the articulation of the exterior envelope and roof lines break up the building’s massing, blending with the surrounding context of smaller buildings.
