A developer is hoping to break ground this spring, if sufficient local investment is made in the project. Franchised by GrandStay Hospitality, a Minnesota company, the hotel would have 54 rooms, including six extended stay suites with a living area and kitchen. The hotel would also have a meeting room with space for 125 people, a prep kitchen for caterers, pool, fitness center, and lounge where wine, beer and possibly simple food items could be served. The study estimates 102,000 room nights at spent at seven hotels in Green Bay, Shawano, Pulaski and Marinette that would be comparable to the hotel planned for Oconto Falls. There’s a large demand for hotel space because of funerals, weddings, medical stays, not to mention tourism all year round, from snowmobiling and ATVing, fishing derbies and more, she said. Visitors were coming last year from as far as Appleton to attend the popular concerts in the park. There will be an investor meeting on March 28th you can direct all your questions to the Oconto County Economic Development Corporation.
