CIRCLEVILLE – In January of 2019 a phone call with Hampton inn developer Shaun Pan to Mayor of the City of Circleville Don Mcllroy set a 87 room flagship property in motion. Now that idea has come to fruition with the opening of Circlevilles first Hampton inn.
In a phone conversation with developer Shaun Pan he told Sciotopost that he contacted Mayor Mcllroy at noon on January 16, 2019 and was invited to visit Circleville on the same day. Pan and his partners arrived at the City Administration building at 3pm that afternoon and was greeted by the Mayor and Executive Director of Pickaway Progress Partnership Ryan Scribner, Executive Director Pickaway County Visitors Bureau Tim Wilson, President of Pickaway County Chamber of Commerce Amy Elsea , and Director of Public Services Don Sherman.
Mayor McIlroy and Mr. Scribner then took Pan and his partners to the proposed hotel site and gave them a tour of Circleville. Within one afternoon, the hotelier group had made its decision to choose Circleville as its new location, and instrumental in this decision was the hospitality, enthusiasm and extraordinary efforts made by Mayor McIlroy to showcase Circleville.
Pan said, “that this immediate action helped make his decision to build the Hampton here in Circleville as he had several other areas he was considering.”
Mayor Mcllroy has a background in Hotel Management and hospitality, Pan said that was another piece that helped him make the decision.
“It’s an honor to have been so welcomed to build the first new hotel in over 20 years in this area by leaders that want to make Circleville the next destination for travelers,” stated Mr. Pan. “And to be able to do it under the Hilton umbrella makes this project even more notable. We’re thrilled to be adding this new Hampton Inn to our portfolio with such an outpouring of local support and teamwork.”
The Circleville Hampton Inn features a indoor pool, hot Hampton breakfast, complimentary high-speed wireless internet throughout the hotel, Business Center, on-site Guest Laundry, Fitness Center and Digital Key Mobile Check-In.
With its name recognition and outstanding reputation, Hampton Inn Circleville is expected to be a top choice for travelers to the Circleville/Pickaway County region. Additional meeting room space was also added to the Hotel that was reported by several entities as a needed space for people traveling into the area to meet.
