Historic Ohio inn reopens after 8 months of $9M renovations

GRANVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A 91-year-old inn located just outside of Columbus has reopened after undergoing eight months of $9 million renovations.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1Iogb0p ) the Granville Inn has new heating and cooling systems, nine additional guest rooms, a new bar, kitchens and an elevator.

It also has an open-air patio and a new tavern space with local craft beer on tap. The former garage has been turned into a meeting space big enough for 65 people.

Denison University bought the inn out of receivership in 2013 and then closed it in August for repairs. The president of Columbus Hospitality Management says the company will run the inn for the university.

He says the inn has sold out for Mother’s Day weekend and took 400 reservations.
