Renovations begin on historic Merced hotel


Renovations begin Monday for the historic El Capitan Hotel in downtown Merced.

The hotel’s one-story annex will be replaced with a four-story hotel wing.

The adjacent 90-year-old hotel building will also be fully remodeled.

Both parts will be connected and turned into a boutique hotel.

El Capitan is expected to reopen by 2020.
