Officials in Hendricks County will break ground Tuesday on a $25 million hotel project in Plainfield. Tourism leaders say the new Embassy Suites will be the county's first and only full-service hotel and conference center.

The hotel will feature 175 rooms and more than 21,000 square feet of conference and banquet space. Additionally, it will include a full-service restaurant, among other amenities. Visit Hendricks County says the conference center will be the closest one to the Indianapolis International Airport.

The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. at the site of the hotel near the I-70 interchange in Plainfield. Representatives from Hilton, Sun Companies, Hendricks County, the town of Plainfield and Visit Hendricks County will be in attendance.

The hotel is scheduled to open in 2018. In February, Visit Hendricks County Executive Director Jaime Bohler Smith said the hotel and conference center will be a "game changer" for tourism in the county.
