Granger Group welcomes award-winning hotel company Stellar Hospitality to Metro Health Village

Wyoming, Mich. (Feb. 28, 2017) – Granger Group is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with Stellar Hospitality for the development of a new Fairfield Inn and Suites—a member of the Marriott family brand of hotels—in the Metro Health Village.

“We are very excited to have Stellar Hospitality bring their best-in-class brand of hospitality to Metro Health Village,” said Gary Granger, President and CEO of Granger Group. “Fairfield Inn and Suites will make an excellent addition to our vibrant community.”

Construction of the Fairfield Inn and Suites located at 5970 Metro Way—on the corner of M-6 and Byron Center Ave.—is scheduled for early summer. Both business and leisure guests to the West Michigan area will enjoy the hotel’s spacious, modern guest rooms and suites, a business center, multi-use meeting spaces, a 24-hour fitness room, health-conscious food options and several other popular amenities. The Fairfield Inn and Suites will stand near Metro Health Hospital and will be a great complement to other businesses located in the village including First & Main Senior Living, the YMCA, Lake Michigan Credit Union, Family Fare, Starbucks and a host of other retailers.

“Expanding our portfolio of first-class hotels to the Metro Health Village community is an incredible opportunity to join one of the most impactful developments in West Michigan,” said Malik Abdulnoor, CEO of Stellar Hospitality. “Becoming neighbors with a world-class health care complex and joining others in this thriving corridor strengthens our ability to provide guests with an exceptional experience.”

The $8 million project was negotiated by Granger Group and Premier Realty Services, LLC of Farmington Hills, MI. The addition of the hotel is one of several new projects planned for 2017. In addition, Granger Group is developing two additional retail buildings along Byron Center Ave., which will include several national tenants.
