Council Considers Hiring Consultant
ONEONTA – Common Council Tuesday will be asked to approve a contract with REVPAR International Inc., Alexandria, Va., to do a feasibility study on whether a boutique hotel would be successful in downtown Oneonta.
During Mayor Dick Miller’s administration, such a plan was discussed for the lot between Ristorante Stella Luna and Foothills, but the concept did not move forward at that time. The land was owned by the late Gene Bettiol.
REVPAR has a 25-year track record of projects in the tourism and hospitality business. According to its website, “Our extensive knowledge of both domestic and international markets evolves from the REVPAR team’s successful completion of thousands of projects the world over including the United States, Caribbean, Europe, and Asia.”
Council meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in City Hall.
