New convention center hotel opening in West Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The long-awaited Palm Beach County Convention Center hotel is opening to the public.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Hilton will happen Friday morning.

The building is expected to generate an estimated $1billion in new revenue.

The hope is that the hotel will lure out-of-state businesses to book their conventions in West Palm Beach.

The convention center opened in 2003 but has struggled without a connected hotel to house conference attendees.

The hotel will start accepting its first guests Friday night. They will accept walk-ins. All reservations start February 6th.
