Delay for Joe Montana’s hotel at new 49ers stadium

Joe Montana’s plan to build a new hotel and restaurant next to

the 49ers’ new Silicon Valley stadium is not advancing as quickly

as expected.

The Hall of Fame quarterback had wanted the four-star hotel,

upscale restaurant and sports bar to open in August 2014, when the

49ers move to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

The San Jose Mercury News ( ) reports that

Montana now hopes the complex will be open in time for the 50th

Super Bowl in February 2016.

The plan is being delayed because Montana and his business

partners haven’t been able to reach a deal with Santa Clara

officials on the value of city-owned land where the complex would

be built. Another development project has also prompted new design

work on the hotel.
