Holiday Inn Express Hotel coming to Maize

WICHITA — Maize has landed its second hotel deal.

Developer Marv Schellenberg and the city of Maize today announced a new Holiday Inn Express Hotel, which will be at the Hampton Lakes development at 10750 Hampton Lakes.

The $2.5 million hotel, which will have three stories and 73 rooms, is scheduled to open in April.

It's the first one to be built in Maize's 124-year history.

A second hotel, an 84-room Fairfield Inn and Suites, is still pending.

Maize administrator Richard LaMunyon says the deal is likely to happen down the road.

"That developer is optimistic that he will start on that a year from now."
