West Hartford Mayor Wants a Hotel: Report

Hotel Palomar San Diego

West Hartford's mayor said the town needs to get serious about the possibility of a hotel.

West Hartford needs a hotel, according to Mayor Scott Slifka.

He told chamber of commerce members during an address on Tuesday that the town needs to get serious about the possibility, according to a report in the Hartford Courant.
Community Services Director Robert Rowlson said the town isn't negotiating with any hotel yet, but has found a 4-acre, town-owned parcel on Raymond Road as a good location.
Rowlson told the paper he hopes the town can attract a name brand or boutique hotel.
During Tuesday’s speech, being called his “state of the town address,” Slifka also talked about regionalism as a way to save money.
 
However, the mayor said sharing services among cities and towns will not necessarily solve financial problems.
