For North Las Vegas, any bit of good news is welcome in market that continues to struggle. Recently SunWest Commercial provided a breath of fresh air in the form of a 94-key SpringHill Suites by Marriott, the first new local hotel in more than four years.

Located near Interstate 15 at 2910 East Craig Road, the $12 million hotel will cater to business travelers and visitors to such destinations as the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Nellis Air Force Base and a new Veterans Administration hospital.

While permits had been in place for the development since 2005, SpringHill Suites delayed construction after the market turned sour in 2007. SunWest Commercial eventually moved forward with construction in order to avoid losing its franchise agreement with Marriott.

The new North Las Vegas property joins existing SpringHill Suites hotels near the Las Vegas Convention Center and in Henderson. SunWest also operates a nearby 104-key Hampton Inn, which has been operating with an average occupancy rate of about 80 percent, the Las Vegas Business Press reports.
