For the Record: Quality Inn purchase will further city development goals


Oct. 22, 2018 - Is the City of Hampton buying the Quality Inn?

Hampton isn’t directly buying the older hotel on Coliseum Drive; it’s being bought by the Economic Development Authority. Governed by a citizen board, the EDA is charged with administering land sales and development. The board approved the purchase of the Quality Inn at its meeting Sept. 18, 2018. 

The action will further two of the city’s development goals: 

  • The need for more modern, quality hotels to support the nearby Hampton Roads Convention Center and Hampton’s growing sports tourism.
  • Accommodating new development in the booming Coliseum Central district.

For the record, the money for the sale is coming from the city. The purchase will be funded by public funds that City Council appropriated to the Economic Development Authority on Sept. 12 specifically for Coliseum Drive redevelopment. Go online for more information.
