Kokomo conference center, hotel should open in early 2020


KOKOMO, Ind. (WTHR) - A $26 million investment is coming to Kokomo.

The city is building a new Hilton Garden Inn hotel that will connect to a convention center.

The convention center will also be the new home of the Kokomo Automotive Museum.

According to our newsgathering partners at the Kokomo Tribune, the develpment will occur on a site in the block between Main and Union streets, bordered by Superior Street to the north and Wildcat Creek to the south.

“This hotel and conference center will allow Kokomo to compete in attracting new visitors, conferences and events, while at the same time providing a fresh, new facility for those that already know the value of holding their event in Kokomo,” said Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight.

The opening is expected in early 2020.
