Delamar hotel approved for West Hartford, Conn.

A Delamar hotel with an estimated cost of around $30 million is slated for West Hartford, Conn. Dan Matos, whose Matos group has partnered with the Greenwich Hospitality Group to form Delamar West Hartford LLC, said the hotel is slated to open some time in 2016. This was all reported by The Hartford Courant.

Currently, there are Delamar-branded properties in Southport (pictured) and Greenwich, Conn.

"We're thrilled, we worked very hard with the town over a long period of time to get this right," said Matos.

The city sought proposals for a hotel on four acres of town-owned land at the corner of Memorial and Raymond roads in June 2012, and the Delamar's application was selected.
