SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (myFOXDetroit.com) -

The Ramada Inn on 9 Mile near Greenfield has changed names and owners several times over the years. Now the building is being knocked down.

Fox 2's Robin Murdoch talks to a former employee, Glinda Fragale, who worked at the hotel back when it was the Shiawasee Hotel. Fragale was also proposed to in the building.

Also, Fox 2's Murray Feldman shares some memories about the hotel that stood across the street from the Fox 2 station.

Watch Fox 2's Robin Murdoch's video report in the video player above.

The two million dollar demolition project began on Wednesday earlier this week. There's still no word on what the prime real estate spot will house next.
