YAKIMA--Construction will begin this week on Yakima's newest hotel.
The city issued a building permit for construction of a 114-room Holiday Inn on the corner of Yakima Ave. and 8th St.
It will be the second Holiday Inn in town and also the second hotel under construction. The old Yakima Mall is being converted into an upscale hotel.
The Holiday Inn will cost about $11 million and should be built by next October.
