A developer has opened a new 133-room hotel along Route 22 in Bridgewater, seeking to capture demand from the region’s population and nearby corporations.
The company, RD Management LLC, announced the opening of Hampton Inn & Suites Bridgewater at 1277 Route 22 West. It has developed the property in partnership with XSS Hotels and has selected Colwen Hotels as its management company.
Located off Interstate 287, the hotel is a mile east of the Bridgewater Commons Mall and sits within an area that is home to major pharmaceutical companies and other businesses. RD Management said the property’s amenities include an indoor heated pool, fitness center, dynamic meeting space and a 24-hour business center, among others.
The operator also touted a location that is about 40 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport, which guests can access via a shuttle service.
“At RD Management, we’re very invested in our five hospitality assets across the country, and this recently opened Hampton Inn & Suites is no exception,” said Richard Birdoff, principal and president of RD Management. “We’re proud of our partnerships and efforts alongside Hilton, XSS Hotels, and Colwen Hotels to debut a brand new, amenity-filled hotel that will provide residents, business travelers, and visitors with a comfortable lodging option in Bridgewater.”
Hampton Inn & Suites is a Hilton brand, while the Bridgewater location is one of 21 properties owned by RD Management in New Jersey, according to a news release. The company’s national portfolio consists of more than 150 properties spanning the hospitality, mixed-use, retail, office, residential, self-storage, senior and student housing, industrial and government sectors.
Each guestroom at the Bridgewater hotel includes a 50-inch HDTV, a coffeemaker, microwave, mini-refrigerator, work desk and charging ports, the news release said. Larger guest rooms provide sofa sleepers, while the suites feature a living area with a wet bar.
