Commission views hotel plans, but operator a mystery
Published: August 19,2011
BILOXI — Pictures of the proposed 500-room hotel at the Mississippi Coast Convention Center have been revealed, but it’s still undetermined what company will operate the $100-million hotel.
Tom Lander, general manager of Mortenson Development, the company hired by the Coliseum Commission to design and build a convention hotel in Biloxi, said yesterday the hotel is based on a Sheraton design, but officials are not committed to Sheraton.
The Sun Herald reports plans call for a maximum 14-story hotel off U.S. 90, oriented north-south to give guest room views of the sunrise and sunset over the water.
The hotel includes a full-service restaurant, a 10,000-square-foot ballroom, 5,000-square-foot junior ballroom and 5,000 square feet of breakout rooms.
