New Devens Hotel Obtains Liquor License

After a multimonth lull in the project, the developer of the Hilton Garden Inn extended-stay hotel under construction in the Devens Regional Enterprise Zone (DREZ) has new reason to cheer.

The Devens Enterprise Commission granted tentative approval to both a common victualler (food preparation/sales) and a liquor license for the hotel. The approvals were conditioned on the granting of a food-service permit by the Nashoba Associated Boards of Health.

Westford developer Robert Walker’s Devens Inn, LLC is the owner of the project located within the DREZ retail district, Devens Common. Walker holds two other liquor licenses within Devens Common, at the Marriott hotel and adjoining Devens Conference Center.

The Hilton Garden Inn is to have 118 guest rooms and a 100-seat, full-service restaurant and lounge area. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and be open to both overnight guests of the hotel and the general public.

When operational, liquor may be sold from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., Sunday through Saturday.
