A new hotel broke ground in West Monroe, promising to boost both the local economy and residents’ quality of life, according to Mayor Staci Mitchell.

The four-story hotel is being developed by Southern Hospitality Services. The hostelry will be a 108-room Residence Inn by Marriott on Constitution Drive, adjacent to West Monroe Sports & Event.

The city hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday that included Mitchell, former State Rep. Mike Walsworth (R-West Monroe), West Monroe Alderman Rodney Welch, Ouachita Parish Police Juror Michael Thompson and other local dignitaries.

“This is just another project in West Monroe that will add to not only our economic standing but our quality of life,” Mitchell said. “We’re serving as a destination here so it will improve not only West Monroe but the entire parish. We’re really excited about the Residence Inn.”
