Plans for a new hotel in the Elm City have been given the stamp of approval.
At one time, it was a church and then a bank. Now, it will now be the site of a new Hilton Garden Inn.
The hotel at the corner of Elm and Orange streets will have more than 130 rooms.
City officials credit the growing downtown area as the reason behind the additional investments.
Developers hope to break ground this July and start taking reservations in Fall of 2020.
