Part II: Time for Expansion
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the complex enjoyed popularity. Its English-inspired Tudor architecture and decor appealed to the theme hungry masses of the day. Its convenience and visibility to the interstate appealed to the now well-trained American traveler. A steady stream of airport travelers helped fill guest rooms. A host of meeting rooms, restaurants, lounges, and a coffee shop, ensured that the complex had activity 24 hours a day.
The success meant that the complex had become Northern Kentucky’s de facto convention center finding a market in smaller events. It was time to grow to meet demand.
