Residents in Dillon and around Summit County are invited to take part in the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Hilton Homewood Suites hotel on Thursday.

The hotel — a cooperative project from Dillon Gateway Development, Kinseth Hospitality and the Frew Development Group — is expected to open sometime next year ahead of the 2019-20 ski season.

When complete, the four-story structure will feature more than 120 units, a 2,500-square-foot restaurant, conference room and a number of other amenities including fire pits, hot tubs, a rollout bar and more. The hotel is also meant to serve as a starting point for a revitalized downtown Dillon core, increasing tourism and foot-traffic in the town, and enticing new businesses to open in the core.

The groundbreaking for the new hotel will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday at 176 Lake Dillon Drive, on the corner of Highway 6. There will be a reception following the ceremony. For more information call 970-455-1600.
