New Renovation Underway in Ashland

Posted: Updated:

ASHLAND, KY, (WOWK) - There is a new light coming to the city of Ashland, Kentucky, and officials couldn't be more excited that the time has finally come. 

"What it means to me as the economic developer for the city is that it validates what we have been pitching for so long, that there are great things happening here. And to see a couple of developers willing to make that sort of investment into our community is very encouraging." Said Director of Community and Economic Development for the City of Ashland. 

The Ashland Plaza hotel is now forging reconstruction and this rebuilding is doing more than just adding a property, it is trying to become the jewel of the city.

"I feel like with the different industries we are hearing about that are coming into our area, it's going to help us all grow." Said business owner of the LA-TEE-DA Boutique in Ashland.

This four-star hotel will have 152 rooms, a restaurant, a fitness center and is wants to bring the community life and bring more businesses back to Ashland.

"Whatever makes our city more beautiful and inviting for the tourist, out-of-towners and maybe even business conventions to come here and meet could be nothing but good and profitable for our city," said Ashland resident Karen Vice.

The Delta Hotel by Marriott is expected to bring more business, more foot traffic to existing businesses, and that Ashland spirit.
