Plans for new hotel, bigger conference center in Cedar Falls

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

New additions may soon be coming to Cedar Falls. 

This week, plans for a new hotel and conference center have been talked about. 

The developer of the Hilton Garden Inn in Cedar Falls says they've had to turn people away, and they're ready to expand. 

There's two big changes they'd like to do. 

First, they'd like to add onto their conference center. They'd like to add more than 12,000 square feet.

Second, they want to build a new hotel that would be south of the Hilton. 

This new hotel would be a Town Place Suites by Marriott. It would be 4 stories and have more than 90 rooms.

It would focus on "extended stay," which means for people who would be staying in the area for more than a few days. 

Last night, The Cedar Falls Planning and Zoning committee voted on this project. They approved it, which means now it will move to the Cedar Falls city council for a vote.
