 A new convention center hotel is in the works for Biloxi, Miss., though the operator has yet to be named. The proposed 500-room hotel at the Coast Convention Center will cost $100 million and will feature a full-service restaurant, a 10,000-square-foot ballroom, a 5,000-square-foot junior ballroom and 5,000 square feet of breakout rooms. Additionally, the property will include a swimming pool, a patio for receptions and a walkway from the entrance to the convention center. Construction on the hotel could begin as soon as January 2012.
