New hotel comes to Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — A dual-brand hotel is coming to northern Fort Wayne.

Greater Fort Wayne, Inc. announced that construction is set to officially begin on a 17-acre development near Dupont Road.

The development is located on the east side of Diebold Road, just north of Dupont Road. The $35-million project includes a 172-room hotel using two brands. Some rooms will take on a Hilton Garden Inn concept. Other rooms will have the look and feel of a Home2 Suites by Hilton.

“We are thrilled to welcome even more visitors to the Fort Wayne area,” said Jason Patel, president and CEO of Blue Flame Hospitality. “Our family has built, owned, and operated multiple hotels here over the past 30 years. This is our largest project to date, and we can’t wait to get started.”

The groundbreaking ceremony is slated for Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 4 p.m., at 10650 Diebold Road. Once completed, the hotel will employ about 100 people.
