Eagan's Cedar Grove redevelopment district is close to landing Minnesota's first Hilton Home2 Suites extended-stay hotel under plans submitted by the Morrissey Hospitality Companies Inc.

The Eagan City Council will vote on the proposal at its April 16 meeting after initially tabling the plans while calling for more stone finish on the exterior of the 123-room facility. St. Paul-based Morrissey has reached an agreement to buy a 1-acre, city-owned lot at 3939 Cedar Grove Parkway on which it would build the four-story Home2 Suites.

The hotel would add to an array of ongoing development activity in the 96-acre district, which once was home to a dilapidated strip mall. The 400,000-square-foot Paragon Outlet Center is currently under construction there, as are Flats at Cedar Grove apartments and a 1,500-vehicle, city-owned parking garage.

Morrissey Hospitality President and CEO Bill Morrissey told the council the new hotel would be one just 30 Hilton Home2 Suites in the United States and the first in Minnesota. The hotel chain describes them as hip, upscale extended-stay faculties "packed with perks and high-tech amenities" such as iPhone docking stations, media hubs and induction burner cook tops.

The hotel would be adjacent to the new parking garage, with a walkway connection. From there, pedestrians would be able to continue on to the Paragon Outlet mall. The facility would feature a distinguishing beacon lighting feature rising 10 feet above the primary structure to a height of nearly 53 feet.

The Eagan Council tabled the proposal at its April 1 meeting in a bid to have the developer increase the amount of stone and glass primary building materials from 24 percent to at least 50 percent of the exterior's total. Representatives of designer ESG Architects said that although the design was largely dictated by Hilton, they would attempt to negotiate with the chain to meet the council's request.
