Hospitality Meets Innovation: Two Huntsville Research Park Hotels Launch Upgrades Amidst City’s Growth

In the heart of a city known for its rapid growth and innovation, Home2 Suites by Hilton Huntsville/Research Park Area and Hampton Inn & Suites Huntsville/Research Park Area have recently completed significant upgrades. Owned by Apple Hospitality REIT, Inc. and managed by LBA Hospitality, these hotels have been integral to Huntsville’s hospitality scene since their launch in 2013. With renovations celebrated in a ribbon-cutting event on May 21, 2024, these establishments are ready to continue serving guests against the backdrop of Huntsville’s dynamic progress, blending comfort with the evolving needs of their visitors.

This renovation will ensure that the comfort and experience our guests receive during their hotel stay matches the thriving atmosphere of the city.”
