Since 1985, when Bruce White started the company with a single hotel, White Lodging has been driven by strategic growth and genuine care for guests, associates and owners. Because of these characteristics, White Lodging has become a trusted hospitality partner for the industry’s premium brands, including Marriott International. White Lodging was the first franchisee of Fairfield Inn & Suites and one of the earliest franchisees of Courtyard by Marriott hotels.
Calhoun Construction acted as the Construction Manager on the construction of the new 8-story, Homewood Suites in Downtown Louisville. The hotel consists of 133 suite rooms, along with a full-service kitchen, pool, exercise room and conference space. The building is supported by a foundation of grade-beams and mat slabs supported by auger-cast piles. The building structure consists of structural stud and concrete braced by two cast-in-place concrete cores and one grouted masonry core. The hotel occupies a former PARC surface parking lot to add to the growing downtown skyline.
