I am so pleased to welcome this project and the development team to the Westdale as we do the groundbreaking today. ... [Our saying] doesn't just mean we're open, welcome is an invitation to be part of the community," expressed Ann Poe. "The folks at Home2 Suites by Hilton will play an important role in our welcoming efforts."
"This is our third property in Cedar Rapids and our second property with Frew Development [in Cedar Rapids] ... so we're really excited to kick off the Home2 Suites brand here," said Gary Kinseth.

Since this is the new development corridor for Cedar Rapids, we're really excited to have this hotel under construction with the growth happening on this side of town."
"On behalf of Frew Development Group, I'm pleased to have you all out here today. ..." said Chad Soukup. "Our vision for Westdale was to transition our tired, old, dead mall into a shop, live, work, play environment. After 10 years of steady progress, our 2022 projects including this very Home2 Suites will see us complete that journey."
