REMINDER: DOOMED KANSAS CITY CONVENTION HOTEL STAYS LOSING!!!



Remember that KC's EPIC downtown hotel project was RAMMED THROUGH by Mayor Sly and voter input was denied.

Here's a reminder that nothing good can ever come from bullying the electorate . . .

 KSHB: Hotel stays are well below average, but KC’s tourism leaders are staying positive

Deets and some optimistic stats whilst we notice locals reporting FAR LOWER numbers:

"Data from the lodging association showed July’s occupancy rate around the Kansas City metropolitan area was 43 percent. Last July, the occupancy rate was at 70 percent.So far in 2020, the occupancy rate is 39 percent. For the same time period of 2019, the occupancy rate hit 64 percent."

Turns out the "missing piece" was a poison pill.

Sad.

Be like New York and put the homeless in it. It will get better use that way.
Oh, and be sure to lock the doors behind them.

"Last July occupancy was 70%" whaaaat??

Pre-COVID, and before this hotel opened, the reported stats were hat ALL Downtown Hotels were in trouble, and struggling to meet a 50% Occupancy rate.

IF there was actually 70%occupancy last July, that was the last time rates were ever that high!

Well they did get rid of the laziest sales (Lori) person in KC. Hopefully they can get the right sales people to actually work during this current economic state.

Kamala sez "there is no vaccine for racism"

Kamala is absolutely correct; the Democrat Party will perpetuate racism and victim-hood until now to eternity.

The Marxist Democrats turn everything into racism. You have to be racist like the Democrats to think like that 24 / 7.

^^ I bet Kamala stole that line from Willie Brown when she was polishing his knob and he said there is no vaccine for Herpes.

Willie Brown was worried Kamala would give him Herpes and he would pass it on to his wife.

They must be doing okay. I haven't seen any Groupons for this hotel yet.

Another scam project that the city did not need done to reward certain constituencies. Sly really blew some holes below the waterline of this city didn’t he? Then the boy blunder sailed it right into an iceberg, all the while blaming Republicans.

And they did it for ... rich white developers.

For the prices they are asking for a night, I can stay on Miami Beach or many other real tourist destinations. Unless you from South Dakota, and KC the big city, why would I want to vacation here?

This hotel was an idiotic idea from the start. The Kansas City Field of Dreams. Build it and they will come. The convention business has changed dramatically over the last thirty years. Huge conventions are few and far between. With newer technology it is no longer necessary for companies and other organizations to bring all of their people together in one place. Typical Kansas City we do something decades after it is viable. Kansas City, Missouri government is inept at best. Just another huge waste of taxpayer money.

Is there no mechanism for vetting bad ideas? Seems like rich white developers throw a few thousand at Mayoral and council elections, and walk away with millions in subsidies and tax breaks.
We can thank Sly for all this bilge.

Now we have a hotel of empty promise and are on track for an airport to nowhere.
