After three years of planning, a Hilton Garden Inn will soon open along the Camden Waterfront. Camden, NJ has seen a rise in demand from local education and medical institutions, and local businesses to open the hotel as more visitors are traveling to Camden.
The project will generate nearly 75 local jobs and will be completed by the end of 2020.
The hotel will have 180 rooms available with 5,000 square feet of meeting space, a restaurant and bar, and 18 suites for long-term stays for guest traveling to southern New Jersey and seeking accessibility to Philadelphia.
A number of other expansion projects have been completed in Camden with $2.5 billion in new development, including the Philadelphia 76ers training complex, the Subaru of America Inc. headquarters, American Water headquarters, and the upcoming ResinTech relocation.
Businesses have been expanding to Camden in recent years due to the growth of innovation and health care facilities. Chase Bank opened a branch in April, which is expected to bring economic opportunity to the community.
