Work has begun on a new six-story hotel at Nebraska Innovation Campus.

St. Louis-based McCarthy Building Companies Inc. said it broke ground this week on the hotel, which is located near the intersection of 21st Street and Transformation Drive, adjacent to the Rise building.

The $23 million, 154-room hotel will be part of the Marriott Tribute Portfolio, which is a line of boutique hotels that are designed to showcase the unique character of the area in which they are located.
