Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) recently announced plans to build a five-story, independent boutique hotel in downtown Findlay, located on the corner of East Lincoln and South Main Streets.
The Hancock Hotel will sit on Marathon’s campus, but will be an asset to the community, available for public and business use. With approximately 100 rooms and numerous suites, the hotel will celebrate the history and landmarks of Findlay and Hancock County. Marathon will invest approximately $20 million in the hotel, which will feature European architecture to compliment historic South Main Street.
Construction on the hotel will begin this spring, with a goal of completing the project by Fall, 2017.
Gary Heminger, chief executive officer and president of MPC said, “In 2014, we embarked on an expansion of our Findlay campus. The development of The Hancock Hotel will be the final piece of our project that not only will meet the needs of MPC, but become a premier asset to the area.” Heminger added, “For MPC, as an independent company, having a hotel on campus allows our guests to stay close to our facilities and also provides an environment for meetings and special events. But importantly, this will be a facility, with all of its amenities, fully available to the community and those who visit here. The hotel will be a community hotel that will complement the city and the companies doing business here, as well as the newly constructed Marathon Center for the Performing Arts, and the many other activities that are occurring and making downtown Findlay a fantastic place to visit.”
