BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Construction is to begin soon on a luxury hotel that will be designed to host travelers to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville.
The city has been upgrading water and sewer lines for the hotel. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports construction is to begin in mid-September.
The hotel will go up just north of Bentonville’s downtown square and will be walking distance from the museum.
The museum is bankrolled by the fortune of Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton and is to open in November. Several restaurants are also planned for the area.
