Trump group brings three hotels to Mississippi

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Trump Organization is opening three hotels in Mississippi. The first is under construction in Cleveland.

Suresh Chawla, President of Chawla Hotels and his brother own the property.      

In an exclusive interview from New York, where the announcement was made Monday, Chawla said with the rich blues history in the Mississippi Delta and the Grammy Museum the hotel will help attract more tourists and jobs.

"We're gonna be able to attract a lot of tourists who have wanted to come to the area because of the Blues, because of the Civil Rights history, what happened with Emmett Till in Money, Mississippi," said Chawla. "With the B.B. King Museum over there. And now suddenly these tourists who are expecting 5 Star or 4 Star accommodations will finally be able to get them."

Chawla says the American Idea chain started with President Trump's visit to Jackson last August when they talked.

Chawla and his brother own 17 hotels in Mississippi. The new hotel under the brand Scion will be managed and operated by Trump Hotels.

It is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2018.
