That’s all changed.  Last June, the property was purchased by Ariva Hospitality. A world-wide hotel and serviced apartments corporation based in South East Asia and China.
After extensive on-going renovations, the Garden Hotel and Conference Center and Greenhouse Grill and Bar held a ribbon-cutting and grand opening celebration, Wednesday, Jan. 14. Hundreds of visitors toured the buildings and enjoyed horsdouevres and refreshments in the restaurant and ballroom. The full-service hotel has 164 rooms. Fifty-two have been renovated with the remainder to be completed by March. The indoor swimming pool, fitness area, ballroom and restaurant are also in the process of complete renovations.
General Manager Chad Bryden has been overseeing the project. Bryden said workers have accomplished a great deal since last June.
