One local hotel is welcoming Irish fans to town by showcasing its artistic side. A Notre Dame mural is in the works at the Waterford Estates Lodge north of Cleveland Road.
Owners said some guests complained the condo style lodge didn't have enough Fighting Irish spirit and they hope the mural will help make guests, many of whom are Notre Dame alumni, feel more at home.
"Our owner's wanted more of a Notre Dame presence, and I didn't want to put up just the normal pictures of the dome or anything out in the hallway. So we had this great big wall right down past our ballroom. And we think it is just the perfect place to put up a mural that salutes Notre Dame," said Michael Brenan, Developer of Waterford Estates.
The mural is expected to be done before the next home game on Septemer 22, 2007.
