New luxury boutique hotel slated for P.A.

An upscale, four-star Premier Best Western Hotel expected to employ upwards of 70 people upon completion was announced in a press conference Tuesday morning. The $15 million project to be built on the south end of the city near Canadian Tire, will house 82 luxury suites in a modern four-story structure. A new beer store will also be on site alongside two empty lots for future development. There are 3,400 Best Westerns in North America and only 25 Premier. Construction is expected to get started in mid-October and be completed in a year.
