WINOOSKI – In recent years, Winooski has become a destination for restaurants, local breweries and startup businesses — now developers want to add a hotel to the mix.
The City Council has approved a design plan to put a six-story, 97-room hotel in the Winooski’s downtown traffic circle area, and the Winooski Hotel Group LLC will move forward with permits and funding.
The design, approved by a 3-1 vote during the council’s meeting Monday, would place the hotel on a parcel of land at 4 Winooski Falls Way. The Winooski Hotel Group LLC bought the land in 2014 for the purpose of developing a hotel and restaurant, according to city council documents.
