The City of Merritt will be receiving a $3 million investment in the form of a new hotel.
Merritt city council gave approval for a 40,000 square foot, 46-room hotel development and accompanying 80 seat restaurant that will be located on DeWolf Way.
This project has a value over $3 million in new construction, and will bring an established franchise to Merritt’s “gateway”.
In a statement, Merritt city council said this reflects continuing efforts to "lay down an environment that cultivates new investment and encourages existing businesses."
