Little by little, the old Shaw Hotel in Plainville is being restored and renovated into a new boutique hotel. With the help of CDBG Downtown Commercial Revitalization funds, the building has been stabilized and new windows and doors installed. Liberty Group of Plainville is developing the project, with cooperation coming from the City of Plainville as grant applicant.
Eventually, the hotel will have approximately 20 rooms, a small cafe, meeting space large enough to accommodate over 100 people, and even a boarding area for the hunting dogs. Completion is expected sometime in 2017.
