The new Hotel at Batavia Downs opened for business today.

The ribbon cutting for the new facility won't be until early November.

Irene. It's a box, containing approximately 90 partitioned boxes within itself. What's it supposed to look like?

As I'm guessing (not sure) the owners/builders probably obtained some sort of taxpayer's assistance (your money - whether you are ever a customer or not), I would think that, the more utilitarian, the better.

I have no problem with private investors spending as much "private" money as they wish on their endeavors. But, (if) it involves public funds, in any amount, in my opinion, it should be done solely on a functional basis. I'm tired of paying taxes for ostentatious, frou frou-laden edifices.

Once the landscaping is in, it will look finished.
