Broadview closing April 17 for renovations

The Broadview Hotel, 400 W. Douglas, will close for renovations April 17, according to information from parent company Drury Hotels.

Work will begin April 18 and the hotel will reopen in eight to 12 months as the Drury Plaza Broadview Hotel. During the renovations, the hotel will have an office in the Garvey Building at 300 W. Douglas, the information indicates.

The $26 million Broadview renovation was scheduled to begin in November before the Kansas Legislature's cut in historic tax credits halted it, Drury officials said. The project will cost up to 40 percent more than a similar-size new hotel.
