New hotel starts construction in popular development

Nov. 4, 2019

Staybridge Suites has started construction in a growing area of southwest Sioux Falls.

The new four-story, 102-room extended-stay hotel is at 4210 W. 59th St. and will be a new prototype for the brand, which has another location at 2505 S. Carolyn Ave.

“It’s a more updated and current design,” said Lee Howell of Howell Hospitality.

“They’re all guest suites with kitchenettes, and everything is extended stay. So there’s an oversized patio with a grill and fire pit, an indoor pool and hot tub, a refrigerator and microwave in every room, one- and two-bedroom suites and king studios plus an oversized fitness center.”

The hotel represents the return of Howell Hospitality to the Sioux Falls market. The hotel developer is a family business that operated in the city until about five years ago when it sold its local properties. The Staybridge will be the eighth hotel in Howell’s portfolio, which includes hotels in Rapid City, Nebraska and Wyoming.

“The Howells have developed some of the finest hotel product in the market, and this is a great development for the area of 57th Street,” said Raquel Blount of Lloyd Cos., who brokered the deal.

The hotel joins Casey’s General Store, which is building a location in the area, and a new office for Highest Health Chiropractic. There’s 17.5 acres remaining in the area off 57th Street and Nevada Avenue.

“It’s great land in the heart of the Louise Avenue and I-229 area,” Blount said.

Howell was attracted to all the medical development in the area, he said.

“That’s probably the No. 1 driver,” he said. “The area is growing at a rapid rate, with Citibank and with the 85th Street (interchange) down the road.”

The hotel is scheduled to open in May and likely won’t be the last for the Howell family in Sioux Falls.

“We’re back getting started again,” Howell said. “We are looking to grow our business in Sioux Falls down the road.”
