The only reason to invest in this debacle is for an express lane entry into the States. If you've got the dough, it's not really that high a price for an entire family to get into the country. They'll probably do a mental write-off of their hotel losses against the cost of the express lane family Visa.
As to the hotel itself: Can't think of any good reason to invest in a property "downtown", which is dying, that's essentially attached to a property like the convention center, that's also dying.
Who, in their right mind, would chain themselves for life to a giant white elephant that's in the process of expiring? After the beast finally expires, you'd have to shoot yourself to escape the decay.
All of this could have been avoided if they had just listened to the voters in the first place and never built the convention center.
