The downtown convention hotel has hit another snag that will delay construction by 2 to 3 months.

Local hotel developer Dunn Hospitality has filed an objection with Hilton to the downtown hotel becoming a Hilton brand. Hilton will conduct a market study which will take 60 to 90 days to complete.

John Dunn has expressed concerns that the new hotel will have a negative impact on profits for his hotels, including the Hilton Gardens on the east side.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke is asking Dunn to withdraw the objection to allow construction to begin.
