BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- It was big news in January 1987.
After months of delays, the Sheraton Hotel on Water Street in Binghamton was finally set to open.
Video shot by WBNG on January 20 shows a snow-covered hotel, which officially opened in the first week of February.
This is where the DoubleTree hotel is now. The location has also been home to a Best Western, the Binghamton Regency hotel and other businesses, according to Broome County Historian Gerald Smith.
Binghamton's first Sheraton Hotel was located at 50 Front Street during the 1960s and 1970s.
