FORT MITCHELL, Ky. - A hotel and convention center in Northern Kentucky will close its doors in less than a week after 42 years of business.
Management announced Wednesday that the Drawbridge Hotel and Convention Center , located at 2477 Royal Drive in Fort Mitchell will close on Sunday, Dec. 2.
“The closing of the hotel will allow the new ownership time to clearly focus on future opportunities for the site and weigh the feasibility of remaining in the hospitality industry,” said spokesperson Debi Purvis in a news release.
In March, the struggling hotel was sold at a foreclosure sale and the Pacific Financial Group based is California purchased the property for $4.5 million.
A court-appointed receiver has been running the Drawbridge since 2009. The hotel was renamed Drawbridge Hotel and Convention Center in 2012 after it was formerly called the Drawbridge Inn.
This closure will not impact McHale’s Events and Catering’s events scheduled in the hotel convention space. In addition, Noce’s Pizza Pub will remain open.
Management has not yet said how many employees will lose their job as a result of the closure.
Calls to management were not returned by the time of publication.
