The University Park Inn and Suites on Richards Boulevard will be replaced by an Embassy Suites Hotel. According to University Park Inn and Suites owner Ashok Patel:

The city approved the redevelopment loan because it hopes to "snag hotel tax revenues that are otherwise captured by surrounding jurisdictions such as Woodland, Sacramento and even UC Davis, which opened the 75-room Hyatt Place on campus last March." [WWW]source. Also, with the state government trying to cut redevelopment agencies, Davis is trying to use the money before it goes away.

From a July 20, 2011 Davis Enterprise article:

"The Embassy Suites project will continue and city staff is working with the owner on the feasibility and environmental analyses. The makeover would include additional rooms, a new rooftop restaurant, underground garage and conference center.

Patel and city leaders say the Embassy Suites brand will draw customers from miles away, helping Davis snag hotel taxes that otherwise are captured by surrounding jurisdictions such as Woodland, Sacramento and even UC Davis, which opened the 75-room Hyatt Place on campus last March.

The university is already planning an expansion of Hyatt Place."
