The Burbank Planning Board on Tuesday signed off on plans to construct a five-story, 170-room hotel on the South San Fernando Boulevard corridor. The project is touted by the developer as an opportunity to revitalize downtown by drawing business and leisure travelers to the area.
The proposed Grandview Suites hotel, to be located on San Fernando between Santa Anita and Providencia avenues, is the second of two new hotels slated for the corridor. Its proposed site is just a block away from where a six-story, 210-room Hilton Garden Inn will be constructed.
The Grandview Suites hotel is expected to generate $9 million in hotel bed taxes for the city over the next decade, according to developer Tony Wrzosek, of R.D. Olson Development.
