Ruddertowne Hotel Officially Opens For Business

Posted: Updated:

DEWEY BEACH, Del. - Seven years in the making and the new hotel at Ruddertowne is finally open for business in Dewey Beach.

The "Hyatt Place" officially opened its doors to customers on Thursday, nearly a year after construction first began.

"Hyatt Place Dewey Beach is a 21st Century hotel for the Delaware coastline and is a legacy project for our company," said E. Thomas Harvey, III, President, Dewey Beach Enterprises. "The multi-phased Lighthouse Cove project, which includes the Hyatt Place Hotel, represents a stellar investment in Delaware tourism and will generate significant economic growth and job creation.

Controversy started seven years ago when the developer reportedly proposed to build a 68-foot tall complex, despite a 35-foot building restriction in the town. A private settlement was negotiated, giving the developer permission to build up to 45-feet, which led to four residents to sue the town and Dewey Beach Enterprises.
