Hotel Marshfield opens for business

Posted:
MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

Hotel Marshfield is now open for business.

After months of remodeling, the hotel opened its doors for the first time on Friday.

"The property has literally been gutted," said Cory Latourell, Hotel Marshfield General Manager. "The only thing that is really left here that was original are the bathtubs and some windows."

This building used to look a lot different. Last year, the Clearwater Hotel went bankrupt. That forced guests out of their rooms and canceled upcoming events.

"It's kind of going from down in the valley to up on top of the hill," said Scott Larson, Marshfield Chamber Of Commerce and Industry Executive Director. "It's the highs and the lows and obviously the closing of Clearwater was low."

Now city leaders are excited for what's to come.

"Not only having the rooms available, but having a facility with those types of amenities is certainly an added plus," added Larson.

Hotel managers are also planning for the future.

"We're getting to use all of the training we've gone through," said Latourell. "We get to see the look on our guests face when they come in to see the property. All smiles all over. Everyone is thrilled. "

The hotel isn't finished just yet. The restaurant won't open until next month, but managers say the hotel is already getting booked for events, and rooms are filling up.
