Town Supervisor Bernie Bassett said he’s pleased the developers plan to move forward with the project this year after it has been in the works for several years.
“Having a Marriott and a Hilton (Hampton Inn) franchise in the area is good for travelers,” he said.
Bassett said visitors often base their lodging decisions on membership in a certain rewards program, so the new hotel could attract even more people to the region.
The project is another positive sign for the local economy, he said.
