Arkansas’s largest hotel has opened in the heart of the state’s mining country.
Hilton Hotels & Resorts announced Thursday that it will open the $100 million Hotel LBI in the Central Arkansas town of Belton.
The new hotel, the fifth hotel in the region, is expected to open in January.
Hoftons hotels in Central Arkansas, including the Belton, Waco and Fort Smith hotels, have been the focus of protests over the past few years.
In November, a federal judge ordered the hotels to be shut down.
The hotel has not reopened since.
