Developer eyes early 2023 groundbreaking for Bridgeport hotel

Dan Onofrio, president of the Bridgeport Regional Business Council, recalled receiving a request from a city-based business looking for overnight accommodations for several executives. RCI is aiming to break ground on hundreds of luxury apartments this fall which, Ganim noted, “Will be complimented by the construction of a new hotel.” But he offered no additional details. “I think we’ll be breaking ground early next year” on a 150-room hotel, Christoph said afterward in an interview. The location is Stratford Avenue between East Main and Pembroke streets. He said the loss of the 40-year-old Holiday Inn last winter — John Guedes is renovating it into furnished apartments — might have helped increase investors’ interest in the Steelpointe site by taking rooms out of the market, but was not beneficial to the city.
