The construction on the Courtyard Fredericksburg Marriott is progressing quickly now. This photo was taken 2 weeks ago, and the third story has gone up in the meantime. The jury is still out as to whether this is going to turn out to have been a horrible mistake, or a tasteful boutique hotel. On the plus side, it could hardly be worse than the “Executive Plaza” building across the street. And at worst, we’ll confine our “high rises” to one city block, with the Exec. Plaza, the Marriott and the parking garage as our “urban center.”
The artist’s rendering of the finished building is displayed on signs around the construction site, and here (click to enlarge).
