Hotels are triangulating in downtown Owensboro. On the east side of the Owensboro Convention Center, we have the Hampton Inn and Suites. On the west side, the Holiday Inn Express.

And, today, it was announced that a third hotel will be built across from the convention center, somewhere around 2nd and Locust Streets.

While convention has increased with the advent of the convention center and the two hotels, the addition of rooms will likely mean more conventions and even different types of conventions.

The name of the hotel franchise earmarked for 2nd and Locust has yet to be revealed.
