Posted January 24, 2005 5:07 a.m. EST

— While many cities are still trying to get their tourism numbers back up, Fayetteville's hotel industry is growing.

Two companies are building upscale hotels. Hilton plans to open a Garden Inn in June while Marriott plans to build a Residence Inn by next summer.

Fairfield Inn just spent more than $2 million on renovations.

The Visitors Bureau credits the steady flow of military reservists for the success.
