Shale Activity Keeps Driving Hotel Construction in Belmont County

From WTOV 9:

As hotels continue to pop up all over the Belmont County hillsides, another readies to open in a matter of hours. 
It’s led Cafaro Company spokesman Joe Bell to suggest now, more than ever, is a boom time for the hotel industry in the county, as the drilling industry continues to spike a staggering demand for local housing. 
"They’re finding now that when they open these hotels, within a few weeks, they're topping out at 90 percent occupancy," Bell said. 
On the perimeter of the Ohio Valley Mall, part of that demand is still a work in progress.
