BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) - A historic hotel in Boulder City that closed its doors because it ran out of money is reopening thanks to an anonymous $260,000 donation.
The Boulder Dam Hotel received the donation on Monday, nine days after its doors were closed and workers were laid off because of a decline in revenue since December.
Officials say they are hoping to reopen the hotel's restaurant by Wednesday.
It was later neglected for decades and several owners tried unsuccessfully to restore it.
In 1993, the Boulder Hotel Association was formed to raise money to renovate the hotel, which reopened in 2003.
