Henrico-based hotel operator opens two properties in the Richmond region; other area projects delayed | Business News

Henrico-based KM Hotels has opened two new hotels in the Richmond region in recent months.

The company opened up the Residence Inn by Marriott on Glenside Drive just north of West Broad Street in Henrico County last month.

That hotel site, which is in front of the Hampton Inn & Suites that KM Hotels also owns, had been the home of the Skilligalee seafood restaurant, which closed in 2013.

The 119-room, four-story hotel was supposed to open earlier this year, but the coronavirus pandemic delayed the opening.

KM Hotels also opened a five-story Tru by Hilton hotel in Ashland. The 91-room hotel is at the northwest quadrant of state Route 54 and Interstate 95.

It also opened a Tru hotel in Radford.

Both Tru hotels also were slated to open earlier this year, but got delayed.

KM Hotels is proceeding with other projects in the Richmond region, but those developments have been delayed because of the pandemic, said Mayur Patel, the president and chief operating officer of KM Hotels.

“They have been prolonged and are still going through the development approval process,” Patel said.

One project calls for a nine-story hotel along the Kanawha Canal in downtown Richmond for an AC Hotel by Marriott.
