The first Scion hotel of the Trump group has found a several month delay having to do with construction permits. The hotels are intended to be aimed at millennial travelers. The first location in Cleveland, Mississippi is now being reworked.
Dinesh Chawla, the CEO of Chawla Hotels explained the challenges that they have come up against.
“They didn’t realize how far advanced we were on the construction. In our lobby, we were going to have music performances. They said, if you’re going to have that, you have to have a two-story lobby. That’s hard to do when you have a floor above the lobby. You can’t just go in there with a jackhammer and knock out concrete.”
Upon opening the property will feature 95 guest rooms in 10 different buildings.
