Downtown hotel that filled in as ASU dorm set to reopen

A lawyer for the site’s owners says ASU’s lease ends in July and the hotel will reopen later this year.  The hotel name hasn’t yet been chosen.  Eventually, though, attorney Jay Dushoff says the hotel will make way for a high-rise.  The new 13-story Taylor Place student towers now being built will house 1,300 students when both buildings are completed next year.
