Drury Inn hotel planned for Chimney Hill plaza on University Drive

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Plans for a new hotel on University Drive have been submitted to the city of College Station.

A 7-story Drury Inn & Suites is planned for the Chimney Hill plaza in the 700 block of University Drive. It'll be located directly behind the new Republic Steakhouse restaurant.

Crews have spent the last couple weeks tearing down the vacant building that housed the restaurant before it moved into a new building closer to University Drive.

Once complete, the new hotel will have 160 rooms and 1,000 square feet of meeting space.

A new Starbucks with a drive-thru is also planned for the site.
