The city’s only downtown hotel, shuttered by the state in October, was recently labeled an “unsafe structure” by the city of Trenton, officials said.
Issues with the Lafayette Park Hotel and Suites’ sprinkler system pipes led to the unsafe designation by Trenton’s inspections officials in the first week of January, state and city officials said recently.
The 197-room hotel on West Lafayette Street remains closed by the state’s Division of Fire Safety.
Hotel manager Mashkoor Ahmad said Monday work continues on rehabbing the hotel. “We are almost there,” he pledged.
