The beginning of 2018 has certainly been a very busy time for the IDM Hospitality team. With multiple properties throughout it’s portfolio garnering local and national awards, the company’s commitment towards continuous growth can be best illustrated by two major expansion efforts nearly doubling total room counts at properties in Madison, Wisconsin, and Springfield, Missouri.
Named Boutique Hotel of the Year by the Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association, Hotel Vandivort in Springfield is excited to expand their success story as a community stalwart. Breaking ground in mid-April, the expansion aims to build upon the already established four diamond award winning operation by introducing a scenic rooftop destination with picturesque views of the cityscape along with flexible event space, luxury spa concept, retail outlets, a new courtyard promoting a more communal experience for guests to the property, along with a number of new overnight guest rooms and suites.
Not to be outdone, HotelRED in Madison looks to continue capitalizing on its prime location and ultra-modern industrial feel in the hub of the active Monroe street neighborhood. Serving as the only full service hotel directly across from the historic University of Wisconsin Camp Randall football stadium, HotelRED will begin to build skyward early this summer with a three-story addition inclusive of versatile corporate and social event space, additional guest suites, a new lounge and rooftop gathering space.
“We are thrilled that these two incredibly unique brands that are so plugged into their communities continue to grow,” says Vice President of Operation, Becky Rogers. “Each of these projects will enhance the guest experience and make their stay even more enjoyable.”
IDM Hospitality continues a number of management, development and advisory projects throughout the country and looks forward to the openings outlined above in 2019.
