Construction on a new $4.6 million Comfort Suites hotel in Kennewick is expected to start this summer.
The four-story, 84-unit hotel will be built at 3703 Plaza Way, near two existing wine tasting rooms and a veterinary clinic. Dale Sweeney, a Bellevue-based architect, is designing the property which is owned by Lincoln Asset Management, a Portland-based property management company with properties in Ellensburg, Yakima and Moses lake, as well as the Oregon Coast.
The Kennewick Planning Commission approved the project in September but the project was delayed. Project developers obtained building permits in early June to start construction on the project.
