PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky businessman and a Kansas
hotel developer have partnered with the aim of building a luxury hotel in downtown Paducah.
Paducah businessman Ronnie James and developer Donald Culbertson, owner of the Sunway Hotel Group in Overland Park, Kan., said the hotel will be along the Tennessee River, less than three blocks from the performing arts center and downtown Paducah.
The planned hotel will have at least 150 rooms and be an affiliate of either the Hilton or Hyatt Franchise, James and Culbertson said.
The estimated cost is $20 million to $25 million and financing has been approved, Culbertson said.
