A new “upper-scale” hotel is coming to Baton Rouge’s health district, The Advocate reports.

A 2-acre piece of land was bought by Summa Lodging LLC with the plan of building a 140-plus room hotel with an intended opening date of 2019.

“There’s a need for it, with all of the medical expansions going on in that area,” said Summa Lodging co-owner Ash Patel, according to the Advocate.

The hotel will be located on Summa Avenue and will serve the Essen, Bluebonnet, Perkins medical area.
