The Grand Royale Hotel in downtown Binghamton has been closed for planned renovations.

Owner Nirmal Aujla says the Collier Street hotel closed for business on December 21.

Aujla says he expects renovation work to get underway soon. The building was constructed in 1897 and served as Binghamton City Hall for several decades.

Aujla, a Watertown dentist, acquired the property about four years ago. The planned renovation project may include parking improvements. The hotel has a small lot on the west side of the building, which is accessible from State Street.

Parking for hotel guests also has been available at the neighboring city-owned Collier Street garage. That structure has deteriorated and is in need of significant repair work.

Aujla is working with city officials to look into possible traffic pattern changes for hotel visitors.

The owner says he anticipates the hotel will reopen by summer, although he did not provide a specific target date for completion of the renovations.
