Downtown has a new boutique hotel, the second for businessman Earl Ketry. Pearl Street Grill owner Ketry converted the Webb Lofts building on Pearl Street from apartments to a 32-unit hotel, Lofts on Pearl. The hotel welcomed its first guests in mid-November.
The one and two-bedroom hotel suites have a full kitchen and start at $169/night.
Ketry also operates a banquet facility on the Webb's first floor, Pearl @ The Webb. This is Ketry's second downtown hotel and second in a Rocco Termini-owned building. He runs the 57 room Hotel @ Lafayette which opened earlier this year.
The $11 million, Webb Lofts project was completed in 2007. The Richardson Romanesque J.A. Webb Building was built in 1888 and had been vacant for almost two decades before being purchased by Rocco Termini.
Carmina Wood Morris designed the renovation plans for the building which won an Excellence in Historic Preservation Award award from The Preservation League of New York State in 2008.
