Tuesday, February 16, 2021
The opening of an Avid Hotel at the northeast corner of Cemetery Road and Lyman Drive in Hilliard is expected in March after it was delayed almost a year by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“We are trying to get the open in the next 30 days. Hopefully, there are no more setbacks,” Sujay Mehta of the Hilliard Hotel Group, the Avid's developer, said Feb. 11.
InterContinental Hotels Group operates the Holiday Inn Express brand and franchises Avid Hotels, including the $9.5 million, 84-room, 4-story Avid at 4079 Lyman Drive.
The new Avid Hotel is on the site of a demolished McDonald’s that was moved across Lyman Drive but still fronts Cemetery Road near Britton Parkway.
