DETROIT (AP) -- A lawyer says a 25-story Detroit hotel that once was an upscale attraction has a new owner who plans to renovate it as a Crowne Plaza hotel.
David Findling is the court-appointed receiver who has controlled downtown's former Hotel Pontchartrain since 2009 after the building went into foreclosure. He tells The Detroit News (http://bit.ly/HSzmjm) that the sale closed last week. He didn't disclose the name of the buyer or the sale price.
Built in 1965, the hotel near Cobo Center last operated as the Detroit Riverside Hotel. Details of renovation plans weren't immediately released.
