ASU homecoming boosts business in Albany

By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State's Homecoming activities have come to an end and some businesses in Albany said the events brought in a lot of money for local businesses.

WALB spoke to the housekeeping supervisor at the Garden Hilton Inn on Front Street, and she said all 122 rooms were filled for the weekend.

Even though it made for a busy weekend and a tough work load, the supervisor said her hotel crew was hard a work accommodating guests.

"We were really busy," said Sconda Griffon. "We had to work as a team to get the rooms ready. Other than that it was great."

Hilton employees said ASU homecoming is usually one of their busiest times of year and they plan on welcoming another large crowd next year.
