Downtown Macon hotel is for sale - again

The TelegraphMarch 7, 2012 

The 16-story, 297-room Ramada Plaza at 108 First St. in Macon is up for sale — again.

The hotel, which closed in February 2011 due to a failing boiler system and aging pipes, was sold in August for $2.5 million, but never reopened.

The property was sold in 2007 for $4.2 million, and the listed price now is $4.9 million.

The nearly 200,000-square-foot hotel was built in 1969 and sits on 2.2 acres.

When it was named Ramada Plaza in November 2006, it was the fifth name for the hotel since it was built. Prior to becoming a Ramada Plaza, the hotel held the name Crowne Plaza for 10 years.
