New hotel to replace library in Marion Square

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Bennett Hospitality will host a groundbreaking on Monday for a new hotel that will replace the old library in Marion Square in Downtown Charleston.

The even takes place at noon on the corner of King Street and Marion Square. It is across from St. Matthews Lutheran Church, which is at 405 King Street.

For ten years, the project had struggled against lawsuits. A lower court decision that could have permanently shut it down was blocked by the State Supreme Court in 2013.
