New Black Owned Hotel Opening In Downtown Oakland

lawrencedamon ceo homage groupWith Oakland’s tourism numbers currently at an all-time high, the city is about to get a new boutique hotel in its downtown area.

Damon Lawrence is the founder of the Homage Hotel Group, which is making plans to open the Town Hotel in downtown Oakland. The hotel will replace an existing hotel on 11th Street, according to the Homage Hotel Group’s website.

At present, the building has 100 rooms but that number will likely drop to accommodate creating more bathrooms. According to Lawrence, the final room count will be around 85 to100.

The hotel will also have a roof-top bar and lounge area, as well as a restaurant. Homage Hotel Group has partnered with AlaMar, an Oakland based restaurant, that will open a new location inside the Town Hotel.

No renovation work has started yet, Lawrence says, and he is still working on funding the development of the hotel. However, he hopes to have the hotel finished this year.

“Oakland is amazing,” Lawrence said, “There is so much passion.”

I supposed you mean Oakland, CALIFORNIA, but your article did not properly identify the state, which means that i was not properly written. And what is the Alamar Restaurant, and where is it located in Oakland, and are the OWNERS black, without any other racial group involved? I lived in California for 30 years, and 18 of them in Oakland, and I would like to know more about this, AND will be in contact with many of my friends, family and other contacts there to find out. Because you have simply not put forth very much information about this project that you are aiming to accomplish. And hopefully you will also provide some more information ABOUT YOURSELF. — Rev.
