Owensboro's downtown Hampton Inn to be completed on time

Posted: Updated:

With less than a week before its scheduled soft opening, the owner of the Hampton Inn and Suites says the downtown Owensboro hotel will be completed on time.  

Crews spent Monday cleaning the inside and outside of the hotel, hanging the Hampton Inn and Suites sign on the side of the building, finishing up landscaping, and hanging art.

Owner Malcolm Bryant says a lot of creativity has gone into the hotel project. He says it's like a garden where everyday something is blooming.

Some downtown businesses in Owensboro say the hotel and its walking distance from downtown is a slam dunk for them.

"When you're talking about conventions, at least once a month, you're talking an upwards of a couple thousand people. It's a captive audience we can see every night," said John Condray with Gambrinus. 

The hotel will have its grand opening on February 1. That's when the public will be able to come out here and tour the building.
