East Elmhurst’s old LaGuardia Aiport Hotel will be renovated and replaced by two brand-new hotels in the coming months.
The nine-story Ibis and seven-story Aloft hotels will be situated at 100-33 Ditmars Blvd. across from LaGuardia Airport.
According to state Sen. Jose Peralta (D- East Elmhurst) the renovations are being welcomed by the neighborhood.
“It’s a win-win for the community,” Peralta said in a Tuesday interview.
He said that the new renovations will not only give travelers a quality spot to spend a night to a few days, but also will help boost the local economy.
He added that the project could provide new jobs within the community.
And future homeless shelter rooms as well. In fact, that was the rumor not too long ago. I wonder what happened.
