Hotel Nacogdoches Opens it's Doors as Hotel Clarion

by Kirby Gibbs

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The Old Hotel Nacogdoches has reopened its doors for business, but under a new name and with a new look.

Now the Clarion, the hotel not only has a new look, but the owners say they also have a new and better way of doing business. They say after years of poor management from previous owners they were left to pick up the pieces. And being sued by the attorney general for price gouging during Hurricane Ike didn't help their reputation. But now they're hoping that with new facilities, including totally remodeled rooms and suites, things will be looking up.

The Independent Operator of Clarion Hotel, Maninder Malhan told KTRE, "I hope we can earn back the respect from the community so we can do for them and what we can serve to them and do better business."

While the hotel managers are looking ahead, the Attorney General's Office says, the hotel is not off the hook for nearly doubling room prices during Hurricane Ike.

According to Tom Kelly, the Texas Attorney General Spokesman said, "the litigation is ongoing and is certainly by no means over and to say otherwise, is just a false statement. By no means is this resolved."

The Clarion Hotel is going on with their plans and is having a soft opening tonight. The public is welcome to attend.
