The project is a development of SRH Hospitality, which is a combination of three companies: Seneca Investments, Rochester Real Estate and Harrell Hospitality Group.
Once completed, the hotel will feature 261 rooms, 25,000 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center, a resort-style pool, an event lawn and a parking garage, Harrell Hospitality Group CEO Paul Barham said.
The Westin, valued at more than $90 million, has been about seven years in the making, he said.
“I think this project, given that it’s a Westin brand, represents exactly what this community is about,” Barham said. “It’s high-quality. It’s high-visibilty, and in terms of what we’re going to deliver, we’re going to deliver a first-class, four-star, four-diamond hotel.”
The hotel is slated to open in fall 2021.
