The Town of Normal is moving forward with plans to introduce a limited service hotel across the street from the Marriott as a part of the new Uptown One complex. Big picture plans include two towers, one residential and the other a hotel, with a single story commons in-between, holding a swimming pool and fitness center. Councilman Adam Nielson says a hotel right next to the Marriott makes a lot of sense...
Nielson says plans for Uptown include quality, and that quality comes with a price. City Manager Mark Peterson says he talked with the Marriott G-M who says he is nervous, but admits the conference center is bigger than the Mariott can provide.
