New Hotels Coming to Downtown Augusta
Tourism, conventions and the growth of North Augusta are resulting in plans for two new hotels in downtown Augusta.
One hotel is planned at the site of the old jail, which is currently being demolished, at the corner of Reynolds Street and James Brown Boulevard. A pedestrian bridge will run across James Brown Boulevard to connect the hotel with the parking garage.
A second hotel, an upscale Hyatt House, is planned along Broad Street, between 12th and 13th streets. It will be built at the site of the former Capitol City Bank, next to Frog Hollow Tavern. It will have its own parking deck.
The hotel at Reynolds and James Brown is expected to have 125 to 135 rooms, while the Hyatt House will have 100 to 117 rooms.
