BEATRICE - A southeast Nebraska city has a new hotel. An extended stay My Place Hotel opened Wednesday, in north Beatrice, along U.S. Highway 77.
Within a half-hour of opening, the business saw its first customers.
Elizabeth Uriel is General Manager of the Beatrice My Place Hotel. The facility offers anywhere from a one-night stay to extended periods of lodging, as an example, for workers coming to the area who will be on a job site for several weeks. Koch Nitrogen northwest of Beatrice has several workers coming to the area.
Uriel says the company is approaching having 50 extended stay hotels across the nation. The company has hotels in Hastings and LaVista.
The Beatrice hotel is employing eleven people to start with. It's located adjacent to the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Farm Credit Services building, off the west side of U.S. 77.
The hotel is also pet-friendly, on a weekly basis. Rooms have queen-sized beds, offer recliners, a full-size refrigerator and stove top and bathrooms with full-sized mirrors.
The Beatrice My Place Hotel, which has been under construction for several months, received its occupancy permit this week. The first company hotel opened in 2012, in Dickinson, North Dakota.
