Three new luxury hotels coming to Valley

Three proposed luxury hotels will be built on Valley Boulevard near Del Mar Avenue in San GabrielWorld Journal (世界日报) reports. Construction will begin after the San Gabriel Planning Commission, Design Review Commission, and City Council approve the proposals, according to San Gabriel Councilman Chin Ho Liao.

The Crown Plaza Hotel, the proposed project for the northeast corner of Del Mar and Valley, has been approved by the planning commission, Liao told World Journal. The other two hotels will be located next to the Hilton Hotel but are still under review. Hilton is a major investor in the hotel project, and all three hotels also have investors from mainland China.

Tourists who stay at San Gabriel hotels pay a 12 percent "hotel tax," which brought more than $10 million in tax revenue to San Gabriel in 2012, World Journal reports. The new hotels will not increase traffic congestion in the area because San Gabriel is planning on improving Del Mar Avenue and giving it a "facelift," Liao told World Journal.

  1. New renderings of the proposed Landmark Hotel/Holiday Inn Express in the city of San Gabriel have been released.


    I also noticed the A+ Furniture store on the northeast corner of that intersection (Del Mar Ave/Valley Blvd) has finally closed. That store was around for quite a while. According to the city of San Gabriel, a proposed new 4-story mixed-use project will be replacing this structure. It is going through preliminary design and initial consultation at this time (click on “Real Estate Update” through the link above).
