NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WBEN) - A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the new Courtyard Marriott in Niagara Falls on Thursday morning.

The $12.8 million hotel is located at the corner of Buffalo Avenue and John B. Daly Boulevard. The building is an 82-room hotel that includes 4,700 square feet of retail space for businesses like a home theater lounge, a 24/7 Grab-n-Go Market, a Marriott Bistro with Starbucks service, and a public outdoor lounge and dining area. 

Indian Ocean, LLC received a $1.25 million grant from the state for the project. The company's co-owners, B.F. and Pragna Patel, purchased the former Moore Business Forms building in 2010, which used to be the Niagara Chocolate Company as early as 1912.

"Is Niagara Falls coming back? Of course it is," Governor Andrew Cuomo said. "Why? Because the Patel's say it is with $12 million and Goldman Sachs says it is with their investment. That's how you know Niagara Falls is coming back. Our job is to keep it going...keep priming that pump and generate more and more private sector economic activity."

The hotel includes six luxury suites and a penthouse office space on the fourth floor. 

Twelve full-time jobs will be created as a result of the hotel's construction.
