Plans OK'd for Downtown Paducah hotel

Hilton Garden Inn

If you would like a bar, restaurant, and meeting space all with a top floor view of Downtown Paducah and the Ohio River, you're probably going to like these plans. At the Paducah Riverfront Development Authority meeting, plans were unveiled for the six story Hilton Garden Inn Hotel that will be attached to the Convention Center via a skywalk going over the flood wall. The plans were approved by the board, with the understanding that the colors for the outside of the building will probably differ from the sketches. (Hilton Garden Inn; Updated: 10:48 am, Thursday)
