Estero council approves Hilton hotel project


Estero village council approved the plans to build the Hilton hotel Wednesday morning during a special zoning meeting.

The planned development will take up 2.3 acres near the Miromar Outlets and the Hertz Arena.

Both shoppers and business owners are enthusiastic about the project, saying they think the hotel will help bring in more customers and cut down on drive times.

“People like to go somewhere and spend the night and then maybe walk and shop,” which is why Barbara Vandyke says she can’t wait for the Hilton to be up and running.

“It makes it more convenient,” she said. “Like we were looking for that last night and we actually had to drive, but this is like walking distance so this is great.”

Even though Estero council has not give a timetable on when construction will begin, you can hear people already asking for more stores to be built in the area.
