Work is underway for a new hotel on the east end of River Street.
The property next to the former Georgia Power building will soon become the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Savannah's Historic District on the Riverfront.
North Point Hospitality Group broke ground on the 162 unit project earlier this week.
The hotel is scheduled to open next spring and will employee about 75 people.
The hotel will have meeting spaces, a rooftop pool and valet parking.
