Work continued at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Manistee. Developers expect for work to be completed by June 30.
“For leisure travel, there is a lot of pent-up demand,” said Peter Beukema, founder of 6PM Hospitality Partners LLC.
Peter Beukema saw an opportunity during the pandemic to start a new role in the hospitality industry, stepping down as CEO of Suburban Inns. He is still one of the owners of the business, but has formed the third-party hotel management company, 6PM Hospitality Partners LLC.
On Thursday night, the Manistee Planning Commission spent more than four hours talking about a new Hampton Inn Hotel across from First Street Beach.
The proposed Hilton-branded, five-story hotel is expected to be completed in April 2022 and would replace the two-story Lakeshore Motel now at the property along Lake Michigan.
