NC State To Develop Hotel, Conference Facility

RALEIGH, N.C. N.C. State University is announcing plans to develop a privately managed hotel and conference facility on Centennial Campus.


The facility is to operate under the Marriott Autograph Collection franchise. It's expected to open with 155 rooms and 7,500 square feet of meeting space, with potential expansion of up to an additional 75 rooms and 7,500 square feet of meeting space.


A statement from the school says opening is targeted for 2016, although final plans are still in development. The hotel will overlook Lake Raleigh and sit adjacent to the current Park Alumni Center, with conference facility space complementary to the center.


The university envisions using the hotel to attract regional, national and international conferences, particularly related to education, science and technology. The $28 million project will be privately funded.
