MCR Development LLC (“MCR”), the seventh largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, today announced it has completed a renovation of the 108-room Homewood Suites by Hilton Yuma, a 2015 recipient of TripAdvsior’s Certificate of Excellence Award. The hotel is conveniently situated at the intersection of Route 95 and Interstate 8 in Yuma, Arizona, just minutes from a variety of government and healthcare demand generators, and is directly adjacent to a 500,000 sq. ft. retail and lifestyle center.
The comprehensive renovation involved updating the hotel’s public gathering spaces and guest suites with Hilton’s trendy ‘Take Flight’ design to enhance the guest staying experience. The hotel now features all new modern furniture and décor in each guestroom, while the lobby was redesigned to offer today’s business and leisure travelers a more inviting and open gathering space to entertain, congregate and unwind. The ‘Take Flight’ renovation also entailed a refresh of the outside leisure area to provide guests with a casual environment where they can comfortably enjoy Yuma’s pleasant year-round climate.
Yuma is home to the U.S. Army Proving Ground, the principal demand testing facility for weapons and missile systems, which is one of the largest military installations in the world and employs over 3,000 people. In addition, Homewood Suites by Hilton also benefits from the multiple healthcare and corporate generators nearby including Yuma Regional Medical Center, Bose Corporation, Johnson Controls and Associated Materials, and Yuma’s position as a national agricultural hub, which brings a host of industry participants to the area each month to trade with local growers.
