What do you think the new hotel at Ninth and New Hampshire streets will do for downtown Lawrence?

Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 13, 2013

“I don’t think it’ll do anything for downtown Lawrence but take up another city block and reduce parking for people who want to enjoy downtown.”

“I think it’ll definitely bring business to local businesses because they’ll be walking distance to downtown.”

“I think it’s mixed because it brings people in from out of town who spend money here, but I also think it’s too big and flashy and doesn’t really fit with the area.”

“Probably not the most appropriate use of space.”
