The corner of Meadow and East has been home to one of the tallest buildings in Fayetteville for decades. After a big makeover to the Fayetteville landmark, The Chancellor Hotel is almost ready to open its doors.
Mary Snyder with The Chancellor Hotel said they have really renovated the hot spot. "We've gutted the entire building. We've redone the water. We've redone the heat. We've redone the air. We've redone all the event spaces. So, it's going to be stunning."
Even though crews are still renovating the building, the A&P Commission got a good look inside the hotel on Monday.
Bobby Ferrell, a member of the A&P Commission, said he is excited for the change. Ferrell has been a fan of this Fayetteville staple since day one. "I was here the night of the first grand opening in the 1980's." Ferrell added "It's changed a lot, but basically the landmark and where it sits has an in to people seeking motels and entertainment."
Another A&P member, Maudie Schmitt, said she liked what she saw from the top of the hotel. "This is really cool looking...seeing Mount Sequoyah and some of the houses in the backdrop."
Ferrelll said not everyone believed in the high rise hotel. "People never dreamed that we might have a 15 or 16 story hotel."
But Ferrell said the reopening is going to be a good thing for Fayetteville. "The Square is our jewel of this town and we're just making the jewel shine brighter."
You can start making reservations at the hotel now. Doors open September 14th, the day before the Hogs take on Alabama.
