Westin To Be Part Of Louisville's Museum Plaza
It used to be that in Louisville, Kentucky, hotel choices were pretty simple, it was the Brown or the Seelbach. Now there are a host of exciting projects set to renovate the downtown area, some already open like the 21C Museum and Hotel and some yet to come. More plans have been revealed for the Museum Plaza, a massive project which will dominate the downtown area. It has now been announced that the 62-story skyscraper will have a 246-room Westin Hotel with a ballroom, fitness center, spa, three-meal restaurant and a bar/lounge. The project also includes luxury condos and an elevated park. The $465 million Museum Plaza project is expected to bring over 10,000 tourists per day and provide a huge boost to the Kentucky economy. Construction on the project should begin in summer 2007 and last through fall of 2010. You can watch video on the project from a local Lousiville news station here.
