VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - The Margaritaville Resort is just days away from opening in Vicksburg.
The Vicksburg Post reports that Kenny Glavan, the regional hotel manager over the project, says it will be open June 20.
Glavan was speaking to the Vicksburg Kiwanis Club. He says reservations are already being taken.
The new hotel is going into the building that was formerly the Portofino, which closed its doors in 2015.
The new hotel will include 117 rooms, a pool area, a large arcade and a restaurant.
The hotel will employ 170 people and they're having an orientation next week. Glavan said that nearly 2,000 people came to a job fair for hotel applicants.
