Sacramento Airport Hotel Developer Needs More Time

The Sacramento County supervisors on Tuesday are expected to give the developer of a long-delayed hotel project at Sacramento International Airport more time.

In 2012, the county selected Los Angeles-based Sonnenblick Development LLC to bring a hotel to the airport, which is owned by Sacramento County.


The development agreement was in danger of expiring, so earlier this year, the county gave Sonnenblick an extension until Oct. 12 to begin construction on a 150-room Hyatt Place hotel.

That first extension has expired, but Sonnenblick on Oct. 12 sent a check to the county to begin the entitlement and permitting process.

A county staff report now recommends that supervisors give Sonnenblick more time. On Tuesday, supervisors will consider giving the developer up to five years to deliver the project.

Hyatt Place brand hotels are limited-service properties. Locally, there are Hyatt Place properties in Rancho Cordova, Davis and Roseville.

The airport began looking for a hotel developer in 2011, as it opened a $1 billion terminal expansion. The airport expansion was the largest public works project in Sacramento history.
