Once again we’re reminded of the inadequate supply of hotel rooms in Philadelphia, now that the convention center has expanded. The mayor thinks it would be divine to have a nice, new, big anchor hotel in town, but the hotelier will need to foot the entire bill:
…The problem is money. McDonald says the city is not committing to offer financial incentives to lure another major hotel to town.
At the same time, the Occupy movement is possibly bringing a convention to the city.
Hmmm, a lack of hotel rooms and a convention for Occupy Wall Street….That gives us an idea!
