Hotel Hotwire: Philly’s Hotel Scene So Ripe, Even Camden Is Getting In On The Action

the site of a proposed hilton hotel in camden new jerseyNo shit.
A Philadelphia developer will seek approval next month from the [Camden] city planning board to build a $28 million Hilton Garden Inn on the waterfront between the new Ferry Terminal office building and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

It is believed to be the first new hotel in the city since the Plaza Club Hotel was built in the 1930s. Still standing at 5th and Cooper streets, the Plaza has been vacant since 1985.
Construction could begin at the end of this year with a projected spring 2010 opening.

If all goes according to plan, visiting professors to Rutgers-Camden, engineers to L-C Communications, executives to Campbell Soup Co. and medical experts to Cooper University Hospital will no longer have to stay overnight in Cherry Hill, Marlton or Mount Laurel to conduct business in Camden.

With a new hotel, Camden will also be poised to handle overflow guests headed to the expanded Pennsylvania Convention Center in downtown Philadelphia.
Get some, Camden. Get some.

Camden may get Hilton hotel [ Courier Post ]
