The hotel — at South Dawson Street and Remington Avenue — is expected to open in late fall or early winter, said Jeremy Emmett, chief operations officer of the group of local business people who own the Marriott and the Thomasville Hampton Inn.

“Construction is still moving forward,” Emmett said. “We’re still on schedule right now.”

Framing of the four-story hotel should be complete within a few days.
