Developers from Orleans County and Pennsylvania kicked off construction of Cobblestone Hotels' first location in New York state last week with a new hotel planned for Medina.
Investor Todd "Booka" Haynes of Medina Hospitality is teaming up with Pennsylvania's Creekside Hospitality to erect a 58-room Cobblestone Inn & Suites inside the Medina Business Park, between Pride Pak and Takeform.
Located at 11591 Maple Ridge Road, the new 39,000-square-foot hotel will include 54 guest rooms and four extended-stay suites, with an onsite convenience store, 24-hour Wolfgang Puck coffee service, a fitness room and daily complimentary hot breakfast.
Orleans County officials said they have been working on getting a brand name hotel at the site for five years. The developers already own a 69-room Cobbelstone in St. Marys, Pa. The new $6.75 million project was financed by Generations Bank and the New York Business Development Corp., along with tax breaks and a low-interest loan from the county.
