  • No to hotel, yes to conventions

    A feasibility study conducted by Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) determined that a proposal by Trident Development New Mexico, LLC to build a 134-room Hilton Garden Inn with an 8,500-square-foot conference center and restaurant would reduce room occupancy for all hotels from approximately 55 percent to just over 45 percent, placing existing hotels at risk.

    The consultants recommended against any project that increases the current supply of hotel rooms.

    However, the study showed strong possibilities for community-wide economic development with a first-class hotel and conference center, which could be accomplished by an existing hotelier. The consultants suggested a plan for moving forward without inserting additional hotel rooms into the market.
