E.J. Del Monte breaks ground on Pittsburgh hotel

Ground has been broken for E.J. Del Monte Corp.’s new hotel in the Pittsburgh suburbs, company officials announced Thursday.

The Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh/Robinson Township, 12 miles west of Pittsburgh, will be the Pittsford firm’s first hotel beyond New York.

“Pittsburgh is an exciting market with a strong base of demand generators including health care, education and energy,” Del Monte president Alexander Del Monte said in a statement.

“This new development fits our strategy to continue to find growth opportunities in larger, more diverse markets.”

The five-story, 118-room hotel in Robinson Township will have 2,300 square feet of meeting space and a full-service restaurant for breakfast and dinner.

The hotel is scheduled to open next summer.

Construction financing was done through First Niagara Financial Group Inc.
