Earlier this month, the Planning Commission approved several land use applications by a hotel developer to build off of NW Ninth Street in Corvallis.
The developer, A&A Construction and Development of Spokane, Wash., says the hotel will be a Fairfield Inn and Suites. The hotel will share a parking lot with Shari’s Restaurant and Keller Williams Realty.
Vern McDonald, a representative for the developer in Corvallis, says the area needs another hotel.
“When there are big events in town, the hotels get booked quickly,” he said. “People are looking to stay in Albany and Salem.”
McDonald says he is excited that a Marriott hotel will be coming to town.
“This is big for Corvallis,” he said. “It’s exciting for the community.”
He says crews should break ground in about 12-18 months. The hotel should open about a year after construction begins.
