“As Utah’s second largest municipality, West Valley City has continued to distinguish itself as a growing epicenter of energy and excitement,” said Robert Schmidt, president of PEG’s development group. “When the local community approached us with interest in developing a new hotel, we appreciated that trust and welcomed the opportunity to invest in an upscale hospitality offering that will attract business and leisure travelers, alike.”
“Our well-appointed and spacious rooms along with our proximity to Valley Fair Mall, Maverick Center, and Salt Lake City International Airport will set a high bar of excellence for others to follow…” added Joe Madera, Regional Director of Operations for the new hotel’s hospitality management company In-Group Hospitality: A PEG Company. “We look forward to serving the needs of the growing community.”
Despite the majority of construction on the project taking place during the global COVID-19 pandemic, project leaders pushed the project forward while keeping workers safe.
“When you are prepared for a storm, you can sleep when the wind blows,” remarked Johnny Hollingshead,” Project Manager for Layton Construction, who led project construction alongside PEG. “We anticipated adversity and mapped multiple plans to success so that, regardless of whichever road we took, we could predict the outcome.”
