The construction of a new hotel is slated to begin in September at the Sunrise Banquet Hall and Event Center in Vacaville, near the Nut Tree shopping center.

The 136-room Hyatt Place at Sunrise Banquet Center is planned for an area just north of the recently completed center.

The site area is 2.24 acres and the building area is 77,249-square feet. A2R Architects are responsible for the design, and the contractor has yet to be determined.

Construction is expected to take 14 months.

The hotel and banquet center will feature a commercial kitchen, a guest kitchen, dining room for 140 people, a business center, meeting room, fitness room and pool.

The Sunrise Banquet Center features three separate ballrooms.
