A new downtown study say downtown can have an upscale, full service hotel. A hotel is being planned to be built behind the Elm Street Center at the corner of February One Place and Davie Street. The hotel would have 200 rooms and would be between 10 and 15 stories tall. Its a great idea to attach a hotel to the Elm Street Center because it has a comedy club, upscale restaurant and two large ballrooms. Plus the Internation Civil Rights Museum will be across the street.

"Ed Wolverton, president and CEO of Downtown Greensboro Inc., said there's a need for more hotel rooms downtown.

He said the center city has more than 900 businesses, more than 20,000 workers and nearly 1,000 residential units. Plus, the downtown has the lowest vacancy rate of the six office markets in Guilford County, including Green Valley"


Also remember a Charlotte developer is planning a highrise luxury condo/boutique hotel at the corner of Davie Street and Friendly Ave. That building is planned to be at least 12-stories. The third hotel being planned for downtown could be the 20-story convention hotel that was being planned as part of the Greensboro Triumph Center. That project would include office space, residential, an entertainment complex that would have a cosmic bowling alley, skating rink, multiplex theater, IMAX theater, simulator rides, children's rides, billard tables and restaurant/music venue that seats between 1,000 and 2,000 people and attracts national acts.

"Right now, I envision something along the lines of a Grandover," he said, referring to Grandover Resort and Conference Center off Business 85. "It's going to be a very nice hotel....We continue to be moving the project forward."

It would be great if downtown had a hotel as nice as Grandover.
