City Council voted unanimously Thursday to allow the demotion of Steamboat Landing in order to begin construction on a brand-new hotel and conference center.
The five-story hotel will be called the Canandaigua Club at the Canandaigua Harbor Hotel.
It will feature 176 rooms.
Concern over delays in the project has subsided as city officials said they are confident construction will begin soon after demolition.
The mayor of Canandaigua, Ellen Polimeni, said she's excited about the new hotel and said it will boost local tourism.
"This project has been given a great deal of consideration and a great deal of review, and I think that everyone is feeling that it's going to be a wonderful addition to Canandaigua," Polimeni said.
It's going to be a taller building but I don't think that it's going to detract to any great extent."
The Inn on the Lake has held the title as Canandaigua's only lakefront restaurant for about 30 years. A manager there said the Inn welcomes new business to the lakefront.
Construction on the new hotel is expected to begin in April.
