COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Uptown Columbus will soon see a new hotel for visitors to spend the night.
A Marriott Hotel will be soon find a spot in the 1200 block of Broadway.
The location will be an AC Hotel, which is an upscale business hotel brand.
The economic team of the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce met with executives from the Marriott to plan the arrival of the hotel.
"To talk to the Marriott Company about what's happening in Columbus, the momentum and why this would be a good fit why this could be successful," said Brian Anderson with the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce. "So we do what we do every day to sell the community to the other folks that had to be part of the decision making process not just the local franchise."
Anderson says Columbus is becoming more of a destination city for conventions and visitor groups, which makes the hotel another good fit.
He also says the hotel should be in Uptown Columbus within a year.
