A local businesses is expanding in the Hub City. Arbor Inn and Suites is adding a sister property, Arbor Hotel and Conference Center. The expansion will bring 72 new jobs to Lubbock.
The new building will feature 3,000 square feet of meeting room space. The new hotel also aims to launch an airport shuttle, a boardroom and a restaurant.
"You know we built Arbor Inn and Suites nine years ago," Rob Meyer with Arbor Hotels said. "Probably one of my biggest regrets is not including the conference space there. We get a lot of calls about that, and we thought, 'you know, why don't we go out and do something like that?' And that's our plan."
Arbor Hotel and Conference center is expected to open March 2015.
