Triad developer closes in on opening first of two new downtown hotels

At least one more downtown Triad hotel – the first of two under construction from the same developer – is expected to open before the end of the summer. Mitul "Mike" Patel of CN Hotels told Triad Business Journal that the company's Hampton Inn & Suites (NYSE: HLT) at 235 N. Cherry St. in downtown Winston-Salem should be ready sometime this summer. Patel said the exterior of the 119-room Winston-Salem hotel is complete, and the bulk of the remaining work will be on the lobby.
