Wallkill hotel industry ‘on fire,’ says Partnership chief

TOWN OF WALLKILL – With four hotels being constructed, the Town of Wallkill is the hot-spot for the exploding Mid-Hudson tourism industry. That comment comes from Maureen Halahan, president of the Orange County Partnership.

Three hotels are being constructed in new locations – East Main Street, Dunning Road and Tower Drive, and an old Howard Johnson is being demolished to make way for a new, modern facility.

Halahan said Wallkill is becoming a home away from home for tourists.

“It is totally on fire with new hotels cropping up piggybacking on everything that’s coming alive right now. Legoland will be open in a little bit; people will overflow. The same with the casino; there is going to be overflow. The same with the 50th anniversary of Woodstock,” she said.

This is an area that is really a tourism destination, said Halahan.
