A second new hotel coming to Pullman?

Last month a California property company announced plans to buy land in Pullman to build a Hilton-branded hotel and convention center.

Something must be happening in Pullman.

Now a Louisiana company, InterMountain Management, LLC, has plans to build a 100-room, $11.5-million Hampton Inn & Suites in the southeast corner of Pullman.

Director of Development Stan Jones said InterMountain is preparing to  close on roughly four acres near the intersection of Bishop Blvd. and Fairmount Drive.

“The decision by the other company is purely coincidental to our plan,” said Jones.

He said InterMountain, based in Monroe, La., has found that Pullman is underserved for quality lodging and accommodations.

Jones said it seems odd to him that Hilton Hotels  – which also owns the Hampton Inn & Suites division — would add two new hotels in the same relatively small city. “But that is a question for Hilton,” Jones said.

He said the decision by the other company, Sonnenblick-Del Rio Development, to move forward with its planned Pullman hotel, with 125 rooms, won’t affect his company’s plans.

Nearly all the Hampton Inn & Suites locations across the country are franchise operations.
