BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Boulder Dam Hotel has reopened after being shuttered on July 11 due to financial problems.
The hotel's restaurant was bustling on Wednesday as it reopened to patrons.
An anonymous donor gave $260,000 to help revive the 76-year-old hotel, which also features a lounge, history museum and art gallery.
The hotel will reopen its rooms on Friday night and the hotel has started taking online reservations again.
The Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum, which documents the Boulder Canyon Project to build Hoover Dam, reopened on Tuesday.
Innkeeper Roger Shoaff says the donation should last about 18 months. He says the hotel board hopes to use some of the money to create a foundation, find donors and secure sponsorships for the hotel.
