Officials from developer Alfred Sanzari Enterprises and others cut the ribbon Thursday for a new Hampton Inn & Suites and Homewood Suites hotel located in Teaneck.
The ceremony celebrated the opening of the 15-story, 350-room dual-branded hotel, which Hackensack-based Sanzari called the first of its kind in northern New Jersey.
The property, developed and owned by Sanzari, will be managed by White Lodging.
“As we analyzed the demographics and hotel offerings in the northern New Jersey marketplace, particularly within Bergen County, we recognized that a perfect opportunity existed for the construction of a hotel like this,” Ryan Sanzari, chief operating officer of Alfred Sanzari Enterprises, said in a prepared statement. “We would like to thank the township of Teaneck for their help in bringing this project to life, as well as our construction team for creating a truly unique hotel that will provide an exciting hospitality option for every visitor to the area.”
Representatives from both companies were joined by executives from M&T Bank as well as Teaneck officials at the event.
“For years, the Hilton brand has been synonymous with exemplary customer service delivered in exciting and unique hotels throughout the globe,” Kimberly Gagnon, the hotel’s general manager, said in a statement. “As their latest hospitality offering, the Hampton Inn & Suites and Homewood Suites at Teaneck will continue this proud tradition and offer guests the high-quality experience they have come to expect from Hilton hotels.”
At the hotel, 190 rooms are part of the Hampton Inn & Suites, while 160 are part of the Homewood Suites.
The hotel, at 1 Glenwood Ave., is part of the Glenpointe Campus at the intersection of interstates 80 and 95.
