The Plaza Hotel in Pine Bluff, Arkansas offers 8 conference spaces, 2 bars,a restaurant and over 150 rooms. It is also connected to the Pine Bluff convention center. That alone should bring the hotel great business, but the hotel itself has been inhospitable for many years.

This leaves many to wonder if the hotel plans to “Go Forward” with the PIne bluff movement or if it will remain vacant. McCorvey, the director of Pine Bluff Convention center believes that this contributes to why the convention center is rarely booked. Chief Inspector, Evelyn Horton , said the department plans to do an assessment within the next two weeks.

With the upcoming assessment and the voices of the people we can only hope that this will motivate the owner to invest into renovating the property.
