A fox in the conv. Center hen house.... where are the 2k rooms we needed to make this thing pencil out?.. as a travel cons. For Midwest conventions, plans to come to Tacoma were always turned down by K. Of C. And others for lack rooms within walking distance of center. The Food Network and others were to send 5k people here for West Coast chef demonstrations.... but no hotel rooms. We need a 1k room headquarters monster to feed the smaller hotels, like the Murano and Marriott. Who will that be??.. I have tried for 5 years to block rooms for larger events... It never happens. No local cooperation at any end of the proceedings. Long Beach,Spokane, Bellevue and others always are ready and willing to take care of 2 or 3,000 guests. I feel like Tacoma is still a one horse town, with one hotel, calling all the shots...and blocking any progress... they are only hurting themselves and the whole city.
