National Construction, a division of JG Development, held a groundbreaking for a four-story Hotel of the Arts Baymont Inn & Suites at 2810 Coho St. in Madison.

The 37,571-square-foot hotel will have 85 rooms and add 24 jobs when it opens next summer. Ald. Sheri Carter, District 14, welcomed the impact the walkable place of employment will have on one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Madison.

Aesthetically, the hotel will focus on art and technology, and amenities will include a bar, breakfast area, fitness center, and an indoor pool. Co-owners Karl Rajani and Pat Prabhu, formerly of Madison, also own a Hotel of the Arts Days Inn & Suites in downtown Milwaukee.
