NEENAH, Wis.—Cobblestone Hotels has opened its 50th Hotel in Steele, N.D. “When we started this brand we had planned on building one or two hotels a year,” said Brian Wogernese, cofounder and president of Cobblestone Hotels. “Then the phone started to ring with small communities across the country that needed hotels. From then on we put a goal in place to have 50 hotels open by the end of 2015. We are very proud to beat that goal by over a year.”
The Cobblestone Inn and Suites in Steele, N.D., is Cobblestone’s seventh hotel to open in North Dakota. “Cobblestone was perfect for the community of Steele,” said Alex Chaput, vice president of development for BriMark Builders, the development company and general contractor for the project. “Their service and fee structure make it a simple decision for hotel developers.”
The property features 31 guestrooms, including whirlpool suites, with amenities such as microwaves and refrigerators, coffee service, free high-speed Internet, and flat-panel televisions. The Cobblestone Inn and Suites will also feature an on-site beer and wine bar, exercise equipment, guest laundry facility, convenience store, and a complimentary hot breakfast bar.
