I did some research on down town. Back in 2006 WDI wanted to double our number of hotel rooms in the area from 480 to 960. They said that the CC hotel would be 200 rooms by itself. Well that still leaves 960 -200 or 760 - or we should have at least an additional 280 rooms by now.
I don't know of any hotels that large being completed recently down town. IN fact wasn't there a run down place that closed on 3rd st?
basically I'm saying this.
It appears as though theres been no net change to hotel room numbers since 2006 - yet the CC opened.
If they have been SO SUCCESSFUL why is it that hotels down town still have vacancies? Have I missed something here?
Heck even Schoninger was supposed to put up a hotel on his land down town, and that hasn't happened either.
But if all these conventions are so good for the city wheres the hotel room shortage?
