GLENDALE and IRVINE, Calif.—R.D. Olson Construction recently completed construction on the five-story, 94-room Hampton Inn & Suites hotel on the corner of Colorado Street and Brand Boulevard in Glendale, Calif.

Located in the center of downtown Glendale, the hotel is nearby the city’s Americana at Brand, which features upscale and dynamic shopping, entertainment, and dining options. The property’s location also gives visitors convenient access to nearby Downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena, Burbank, and Hollywood.

“We are proud to be able to participate in the continued growth of Glendale’s vibrant downtown through our work at the Hampton Inn & Suites,” said Bill Wilhelm, president of R.D. Olson Construction. “The property will provide guests with a convenient and comfortable location to work or entertain, nearby first-in-class amenities and metropolitan areas.”

Hampton Inn & Suites Glendale is designed around a theme that incorporates locally-inspired design and Glendale’s classic architecture, while maintaining a fresh and modern feel. The lobby welcomes guests with mosaic windows, wood accents and high ceilings, and eclectic art and rich finishes reflect the city’s vibrant heartbeat. Throughout the hotel, guests are offered views of the San Gabriel Mountains and Los Angeles skyline.

The 57,327-square-foot hotel is designed with a room mix that includes 41 queen, 24 king, and 29 studio configurations. Designed to provide guests with the comforts of home, guestrooms feature the signature Clean and Fresh Hampton Bed, free in-room movie channels, a 42-inch HD television, a microwave, refrigerator and coffeemaker, as well as a well-appointed workspace with ergonomic furniture. The property’s suites offer guests additional space and a sleeper sofa. Additionally, many of the guestrooms offer two full walls of windows, enabling guests to enjoy sweeping 90-degree views of the cityscape and mountains.

Guests benefit from a variety of public amenities such as free Wi-Fi, an outdoor pool deck with mountain views, an outdoor fireplace with ample lounge seating, a fitness center, and a 24-hour business center. The property also features a Great Room, which serves a daily complimentary breakfast and hosts the nightly manager’s evening reception, as well as a Treats Shop, which provides easy access to on-the-go snacks, toiletries, and beverages.
