Boutique hotel ready for grand opening

After months of anticipation, a new boutique hotel in La Crosse is ready to open its doors.

Employees of The Charmant hotel held a ribbon cutting Monday.  After the ceremony,  the public got a first-hand look inside the  67 room hotel. There’s a full bar and restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Developers say the new building is a look back at the history of La Crosse.

“I look around and in 1898, when they were laying these wood floors, these maple floors, here they are, I mean there’s life again in them,” said Don Weber, CEO of Weber Holdings.

The hotel is completely booked for Tuesday’s grand opening.
