Downtown Ocala Hilton Garden Inn moves one step closer to April grand opening

The new Hilton Garden Inn in Downtown Ocala moved one step closer to its grand opening in April.

During Tuesday’s meeting of the Ocala City Council, the new hotel, which will be located at 120 East Silver Springs Boulevard, received approval for its alcoholic beverage location permit. The permit allows for the sale of beer, wine and liquor for on- and off-premise consumption.

Although its original target date was set for late 2019, the hotel recently placed a banner across the front entrance indicating it would open this month. The hotel’s website now indicates that the company plans to open the new location in April 2020.

The location will boast more than 100 guest rooms, six meeting rooms and nearly 4,000 square feet in event space.
