The city and developer HCW will officially break ground on the 71 million dollar hotel on March 10. The 257 room Hilton Double Tree will be built right across the street from Ford Center. City leaders cite the frigid winter and sub-zero temps at the reason behind the delay.

Construction is set to be complete by the fall of 2015.
