CMU looking into hotel addition & Kelly/Shorts renovation
According to the CMU Board of Trustees agenda for Thursday's meeting, the hotel would be built on the East Side of Kelly/Shorts Stadium where the outdoor practice facility is located. The project, as presently designed, would include a national franchise hotel with approximately 150 rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, exercise facilities, business center, restaurant, meeting or conference space, and other amenities.
Part of the project also includes the addition of stadium suites, with new restrooms and concession spaces for the east side of Kelly/Shorts Stadium. The suites would be connected to the hotel by a planned glass atrium. The university would lease the suites, with an option to purchase.
