Waverly Hills Sanatorium zoning change request passes 21 to 0

The owners of the Waverly Hills Sanatorium filed a zoning plan last spring to convert the former hospital into a hotel and last week the zoning committee voted in favor for city council to approve the zoning for the project. The Louisville Metro Council met today and approved the zoning change request by a 21 to 0 vote, Louisville WDRB reported today.

Owners Charlie and Tina Mattingly have plans to turn the former tuberculosis hospital into a 120-room four-star hotel, convention center, and liquor bottling business. The hotel will cater to the haunted hotel tourists as well as regular guests.

According to the plans, the first floor will be used to for a 3,050 square foot restaurant and an 8,500 square foot conference center. The second and third floors will have 120 hotel rooms. The fourth floor will have meeting rooms and a museum focusing on the hospital.

The Mattingly's have been conducting ghost tours in the former tuberculosis hospital and they estimate that about 10,000 people come on their tours every year. The revenue from the tours is used to renovate the building and the surrounding property. They insist that they will continue to host paranormal enthusiasts when the building becomes a hotel.
