COMMUNITY IMPACT NEWSPAPER
After continued development throughout 2020, three new hotels in Shenandoah have opened or will be opening in the coming months despite a recent drop in tourism.
Once they open, Shenandoah will have 12 hotels across its city limits of 2.2 square miles.
The newest hotel additions include an Aloft Hotel that opened Jan. 5 as well as a Hyatt House and an Even Hotel, both of which are anticipated to open by the end of April.
John Mayner, director of Shenandoah Convention & Visitors Bureau, said development on each of the properties began before the pandemic, and the resulting drop in travel activity during that time was a concern. However, he said each of the hotels has something unique to offer the area.
“The interesting thing about these properties is that they are all upscale brands,” Mayner said. “They are new and different for our area. I think in the near term, it is not ideal for a great time to open, but we have a lot of positivity to look forward to with the vaccine rollout taking place.”
