The Sheraton Atlantic Beach is still recovering months after Hurricane Irene damage forced it to close its doors.

It took 45 days for demolition of the damaged part of the hotel to be complete. The hotel's general manager Hal Barnes says since they've finished demolition they have been working on reconstruction plans, that are now in the final stages.

Barnes says they plan to be open in April, May, or June of 2012.

    I drive by the Sheraton pretty often. Haven't seen much activity there for months. They had a clean up crew there right after Irene, but haven't seen much activity there since. Wonder if the Sheraton is thinking about shutting it down all together? Another victim of this recession/depression? The fishing pier really got hammered. More than half is gone. Haven't seen any attempts at repair that either. It'll be a sad commentary on the area's economic state if they don't re-open.
