Grand Opening for Hotel at Ruddertowne

Posted: Updated:

DEWEY BEACH, Del.- After seven years of controversy and legal challenges, the Hyatt Hotel in Ruddertowne finally saw its grand opening.

Governor Markell and other Delaware politicians were on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony to tout the hotel's economic promise in the decades to come.

The project was challenged in a lawsuit filed by a group of Dewey Beach neighbors against the town and the developer, claiming a 35-foot height restriction wasn't followed. However, the lawsuit was thrown out by the Delaware State Supreme Court, after the justices determined the lawsuit was not filed within a mandatory 60-day statute.

Phase two of the project will begin late next year to add amenities and additional condos. Upon its final completion, the hotel will cost approximately $75 million dollars, according to the developer.
