Pine Bluff Hotels Set To Reopen

PINE BLUFF, AR - Two Pine Bluff hotels that have closed
since the summer are poised to reopen -- one this week and one next
month.

A former Hampton Inn that closed in August was set to reopen
today, while the Royal Arkansas Hotel and Suites adjoining the Pine
Bluff Convention Center could reopen by March Fifth after having
closed a month ago.

The 108-room hotel that used to be a Hampton Inn will be
operated as the Market Street Hotel and managed by Sandra Robinson,
who managed the property previously.

the Royal Arkansas hotel that closed February Fifth when its
owner, IBAC Corporation of New York, decided it wouldn't produce
enough revenue this year, is expected to reopen its 198 rooms
before March Fifth. It will have a new operator brought in by the
mortgage holder.
