Niagara Falls hotel shaking up west NY

Associated Press Associated Press 13/07/2016

Work is underway on a new $US35 million ($A46.01 million) hotel in Niagara Falls, one of the largest projects in Niagara Falls in more than 40 years.

The future Hyatt Place hotel is a sign that the area's economy is improving, said Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo.

The 128-room hotel will include meeting and banquet space along with room for retail. Work is expected to be completed in the northern autumn of 2017.

Cuomo says the hotel is reason to believe in the upswing of western New York following decades of decline. He says increased tourism, job growth and a renewed state focus on the region's economy are paying off.
