The Joplin Hotel began a $6-million renovation to convert the property to a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel. Conor Acquisitions Group, the owner of the hotel, plans to reconfigure the guestrooms, meeting space and public areas of the five-story hotel building on East Hammons Boulevard in central Joplin, Mo. The hotel is expected to open in late April 2016.
In June 2015, Conor tapped Atlanta-based Hotel Equities, their management partner, to manage the hotel.
Located adjacent to the 30,000-square-foot Joplin Convention & Trade Center, the hotel itself will offer over 15,000 square feet of meeting space, plus a lobby bar and restaurant.
