The authority picked Kinsley over 12 other proposals at its board meeting Tuesday, board chairman Jack Kay said in the release.

The hotel was closed in early December to begin a $20 million renovation project expected to be complete in 2018. It will be funded in part by a $10 million state grant through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program.

Kinsley's duties as construction manager will include providing cost estimates during the design phase and securing and scheduling more than 20 contractors as construction begins, the release states.
