MRI Hotels has announced plans to build a new hotel in Lexington, NC. The hotel will be located next to the Lidl grocery store at the corner of Fritts St. and Fairview Dr. The 80+ room hotel is slated to break ground later this year and will include a swimming pool, meeting center, fitness center, laundry facility, snack shop, free wifi and breakfast. Although the brand is not being announced at this time, the development will be affiliated with a top tier national chain.
MRI Hotels currently owns and operates Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn hotels in the southeast with a focus on developing in small markets with growing economies that are underserved by the existing supply of hotels. The company most recently opened a Hampton Inn and Suites in Forest City, NC in December of 2017 and is currently under construction on another Hampton Inn & Suites in Lenoir, NC.
