A city that hosts many major events getting rid of one of the biggest hotels downtown? I see no logic in that. Especially since they just renovated the whole thing. Maybe if they announced a hotel of equal or greater size on the other half of the lot I would get behind the idea. But good luck trying to close down that place.
