ADA, Mich. — Construction is underway on the Ada House, a new hotel inspired by the original Ada Hotel.
The Ada Hotel dates back to the 19th century and was called the centerpiece of the village.
Leaders from AHC Hospitality, Ada Township, and the local community gathered at the hotel site Wednesday morning for a groundbreaking.
Renderings show a three-story 37,000 square foot boutique hotel with a restaurant and bar area and space to host weddings and other private events. The hotel will feature 42 guest rooms.
Ada House will have a restaurant and lounge on the ground floor that will serve both guests and the community. Ada House will also have a rooftop bar, outdoor patio and a gym.
It will be on River Street across from Legacy Park.
It's expected to take about a year to 18 months to build and is scheduled to open in the summer of 2023.
Once completed, the new hotel is expected to employ about 70 people.
