Opened for business in time for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, the Hampton Inn on Jesse Jewell Parkway in Gainesville is getting a makeover estimated to cost more than $300,000. Stephanie Berkland, general manager at the Hampton Inn, called the work that got underway at the hotel last week “a major exterior and interior renovation.” The makeover will include improvements to the portico-like structure at the entrance to the building where vehicles stop to drop off passengers, plus roof improvements, according to Gainesville building official Joe Davidson.
