You landed on my hotel

I have an article in this week's edition of the Pittsburgh Business Times.

I think you make some good points. If all the hotels in Pittsburgh are usually only at 60% capacity then the city definitely doesn't need another hotel, as a worker in the industry if no one stays in the hotels then employee hours are cut and people can't support themselves. Also in support of Heywood Sanders the convention center in St. Louis (America Center at the Edward Jones Dome) is a perfect example of 'convention hotel rooms' that go to waste because of no major conventions coming to the area

Hey, how are you?

One figure that I cut from the story because of space constraints was from a report of the bondholders for the St. Louis hotel. Convention center bookings had been projected to be 800,000 room nights, but last year were only 410,000.
