Hotel developer Kirit Patel of Shield Hotels is seeking a special permit with site plan approval from the Planning Board to build a three-story hotel with an area of 6,200 square feet per floor and 35 guest rooms in Hatfield Massachusetts. The proposed hotel, is also expected to house 20 self-storage units located in two buildings on either side of the property. Jeff Squire, Architect with Berkshire Design Group is designing the hotel which would be located on 16 West St. It was originally constructed as the Howard Johnson Ice Cream Shop and Grille and has more recently been used for offices. The proposed boutique hotel will function as an overnight stay rather than an extended, and most rooms will have one or two bedrooms and there will be a king-sized bedroom. Shield Hotels is a hotel development and management company that provides professional services to a collection of hotels in the New England area and beyond. Their current properties in the area include the Courtyard in West Springfield, the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Holyoke, the Hampton Inn in Westfield and the Quality Inn & Suites in Northampton.
