Hotel Beaumont sells; boutique hotel planned

Sale of the Hotel Beaumont officially will conclude today, which means the buyer, Garden Street Holdings LLC will transfer $1,122,000 to the city of Beaumont and the former retirement hotel will return to the property tax roll and await a renovation into an actual hotel, the new owner said. "The market doesn't have a signature property," he said. Since it's downtown, it'll gain market share. Dean Conwell, executive director of the Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau, said weekends could be a bright spot for a downtown hotel in connection with events at the Beaumont Civic Center, the Julie Rogers Theatre and the Jefferson Theater. McCormick said part of the plan for the hotel is to give it reception and banquet capability, noting that the city's Event Centre is booked solidly for weddings for the foreseeable future, showing a market for those kinds of events.
