After many years of service, Larry Larson has stepped down from the Chinatown-International District Business Improvement Area (CIDBIA)’s board of directors. Larson has been general manager of the American Hotel since May 2009. As a board member, Larson helped with community outreach, neighborhood safety and cleanliness, and business and grant development, among other things.
For $35 per night, international travelers and students will be able to sleep in one of 320 beds at the American Hotel.
“There will be some opportunity for extended stay lodging,” said Eagle Rock Ventures co-owner Scott Shapiro. “You have all the amenities here and the transit hub with light rail coming in two weeks before we open. It’s pretty perfect for travelers.”
