CARMEL -

The city of Carmel has announced the name of the first hotel to be developed in the City Center district. Plans for The Carmichael, which honors both the city and the Grammy-nominated artistic director of the Center for Performing The Arts Michael Feinstein, include more than 120 rooms, a supper club operated by Feinstein and a ballroom. Construction is slated to begin in the spring.

The project is a public-private partnership with developer Pedcor Companies and the city has been paying outside consultant Coury Hospitality $20,000 per month to work on efforts focused on attracting Marriott's high-profile Autograph Collection brand for the hotel. Only 100 hotels in the world carry the brand.

Mayor Jim Brainard says "we are excited to see these plans come together for this boutique hotel that will become an important part of our plan to bring more excitement and more visitors into our redevelopment area. We have many wonderful hotels along the Meridian Corridor, but they are often booked solid and more hotels are being planned for that area. This hotel will be a special, unique experience for those wanting to catch a show at the Palladium, then spend the evening in the heart of our new downtown."

The hotel will be connected to the Carmel City Center and near the Palladium, offering views of the Center Green from its dining areas.
