New south Rochester hotel taking shape

08182013laquintaThe new La Quinta Inn and Suites hotel is really taking shape in the Shoppes on Maine area in south Rochester.

PLC Inc., a hotel development firm out of Fargo, N.D., is building it, just east of the Rochester Toyota and Mercedes car dealerships.

The new $4 million, 50,212-square-foot hotel will have 83 rooms and
an oversized swimming pool.

08182013laquinta2 In June, 2012, I asked PLC president Chuck Hayes why he wanted to build more hotel rooms when the Med City already has so many.

"Rochester is a growing community with a lot of history. It is a place we've long thought we'd like to be," Hayes said. "We feel there is a need for more rooms."

And that was back when DMC was just a local sales tax inititiative.
