A new hotel in downtown Butler will be open for business beginning on Thursday.
According to facility General Manager Audrianna Bly, a couple of guests will be checking into the Marriott SpringHill Suites on East Jefferson Street. A grand opening will be held at a later date.
Twelve staff members are currently employed at the hotel in either a part or full-time capacity but more will be added in the future. Front desk and housekeeping positions are currently open.
Bly says the staff is excited to be part of the downtown community and they are looking forward to opening their doors for business.
The hotel was constructed as part of Butler’s Centre City project, which also included an adjacent parking garage and Rite Aid convenience store on the same city block.
Thursday’s opening has been a long time coming. Construction started three years ago.
