Maricopa just issued the building permit for the first hotel in city limits – La Quinta.

According to Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, La Quinta is a “midscale hotel that offers an elevated stay in a contemporary setting.”

The new La Quinta aims to be operational in 2020 and will be located on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard adjacent to Copper Sky.

La Quinta Maricopa is a projected $10 million capital investment with 20 net new jobs added to the city. The four-story, 89-room hotel is the first phase of the planned Copper Sky Mixed Use project.
