BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - Binghamton’s landmark Grand Royale Hotel has reopened following extensive renovations that kept the building closed to the public for nearly two years.

The Press & Sun-Bulletin of Binghamton reports (https://press.sn/1NO69dv ) the entire second floor of the 118-year-old building has been remodeled, a new hookah lounge has been installed and work on the hotel’s bar is almost complete.

Manager Salim Khan says a limited number of the Grand Royale’s 55 rooms are available for booking and the hotel has already hosted around 20 customers since it opened earlier this month.

More renovations are coming, with work on the hotel’s restaurant scheduled to begin in October.

Khan says his goal is to have the entire hotel open and operational before the holiday season.

The hotel’s building served as Binghamton City Hall for 75 years.
