The second La Quinta Inn & Suites in West Virginia opened in early June in Elkview.

The newly remodeled hotel is owned and operated by Fairmont-based Emerald Grande LLC. The five-story property features 90 rooms and 10 suites along with a fitness center, pool and spa.

“We are excited to reopen as a La Quinta property and look forward to offering exceptional service to our guests, whether they are traveling for business or pleasure through this region,” said Angela Davis, general manager of Elkview’s La Quinta Inn & Suites.

Emerald Grande LLC also celebrated the opening of the newly constructed La Quinta Inn & Suites in Summersville. It is a four-story property with 96 rooms, eight suites and many amenities.

“Our staff is committed to providing a comfortable night’s stay at an affordable price,” said Bridget Nutter, general manager of Summersville’s La Quinta Inn & Suites.
