It’s not like we don’t need the extra rooms in any case, but has anyone else found it just a little weird how many new rooms and renovations have been announced in recent days? We know of at least one guy who’s got to be loving it.

Besides the one linked to the pending purchase of Carraway Medical Center by Shinsegae USA, there’s also the recent opening of one of the new look Microtel properties in Hoover and today’s announcement about the $6.5 million worth of upgrades being made at the Hilton Birmingham Perimeter Park, scheduled for completion in October.

That’s on top of the other lodging projects currently underway known and unknown in the metro Birmingham area, including the Hyatt Place under construction on the city’s Southside (even though it is not listed among ones that will be opening in the near future).
