ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Oct. 1, 2020 - PRLog -- InterMountain Management, Titan Development and Maestas Development Group are proud to announce the opening of SpringHill Suites by Marriott Albuquerque University Area located at 1101 Central Avenue NE, Albuquerque, NM, 87106. The 118 all-suite hotel is located five miles from Albuquerque International Sunport and just a few minutes from downtown Albuquerque. The hotel offers guests convenient access to the University of New Mexico, Nob Hill, Old Town, The Pit Arena, Expo New Mexico and will be connected by a skybridge to Presbyterian Hospital across the street. The hotel is part of The Highlands mixed-use development that will feature an artisanal food hall, retail businesses and restaurants. Steve Maestas, of Maestas Development Group, commented, "This project is an important asset to The Highlands development. It will serve as a much-needed hotel directly servicing the University, Presbyterian Hospital, and Nob Hill. The project is part of the ongoing efforts to revitalize the Route 66 corridor and provides lifestyle and recreational options that match people's changing lifestyle needs." The hotel will be connected to Presbyterian Hospital via a skybridge which will begin construction soon, and complete in December 2020.

Ideal for business and leisure travelers alike, the new hotel offers a little extra space with suites larger than a typical hotel room. Separate living, working and sleeping spaces provide guests with flexibility and functionality. The hotel offers comfortable beds and plush pillows to allow for an optimum night's sleep. Each suite also features the SpringHill Suites' custom, three-in-one West Elm sofa which converts from a sofa to a daybed to a trundle bed – without sacrificing its stylish good looks, along with a stylish West Elm Swivel Chair offering additional space for relaxation. The designated workspace offers a well-lit desk space to ensure maximum productivity. The suites offer the latest in-room entertainment technology, allowing guests to access their streaming apps through the HDTV. The hotel also provides business services, complimentary Wi-Fi, same-day dry cleaning, a meeting room, guest laundry facilities, a 24/7 Market, a well-equipped fitness center, and a rooftop patio with a fire pit overlooking downtown Albuquerque.

General Manager Carrissa Virgin, Director of Sales Christene O'Neill and Assistant General Manager Kayla Parkison lead the team with over 45 years of combined hospitality experience and are excited to show guests and the community the new property. Virgin said, "My team and I are proud to be a part of such an exciting and unique experience for our guests traveling into the Albuquerque area. Our location is ideal for those here to enjoy everything Albuquerque has to offer, from its historical sites to its world-renowned food. As the newest Marriott property in the Land of Enchantment, our hotel is perfect for the 'more' guest and our staff is poised to show everyone what true hospitality really is!"

InterMountain Construction and InterMountain Renovation Consultants were proud to be chosen for construction, project management, design and procurement. Being under the same roof, these two groups work together to provide a turn-key development and project management option beginning with the conceptual stages through hotel opening.

The hotel has dedicated an entire floor to be the second home of Ronald McDonald House Charities® of New Mexico (RMHC-NM). Ben Spencer, Partner of Titan Development, said, "Not only will it be a fantastic place to stay while visiting our great city, but this special project will also include new Ronald McDonald House®. This important project will give stressed parents, visiting family, and sick children the comfort and ease of access to hospital amenities that will reduce stress during the difficult times they are facing.

For the last 37 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico has provided temporary lodging to more 37,000 families traveling to Albuquerque so their children can receive medical treatment not available in their community. In 2019, the organization supported more than 1,000 families, but every year staff is forced to turn away hundreds more simply due to lack of space. It is for this reason the chapter has partnered with Maestas Development Group, Titan Development Group, and Presbyterian Healthcare Services on an expansion project both visionary and creative: to be the first purpose-built Ronald McDonald House in a hotel at the Springfield Suites by Marriott. This partnership allows RMHC-NM to occupy the third floor of the hotel, located in downtown Albuquerque. The Highlands House will serve an additional 640 RMHC-NM families annually, increasing capacity by 67%. The space will include 20 guest rooms, living room spaces, a community kitchen, dining rooms, indoor and outdoor play areas, a sky bridge that will connect families directly to the care they need at Presbyterian Hospital, and more. The approximately 20,000 square feet will have secured dedicated elevator access and parking spaces within the hotel parking garage. Jessica Wright, Chief Executive Officer, Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico said, "Today marks the realization of years of planning and partnerships working together for a common goal:  keeping families together during a crucial time in their lives—when their child is facing a medical crisis." This new House will truly be where we have Room For Every Family – a place for patients and their siblings to be kids, a place that offers respite from illness, a place for families to share their stories and find comfort in each other and, ultimately, a place that offers normalcy in the lives of hundreds of New Mexico families.
