God bless Mr. Udell if he can put enough money into the Americus to have it flagged as a Wyndham. I'll be amazed.

I doubt he has spent much time in Allentown and is making this decision based on overall demographics of the two county region. 800,000 people, 11 colleges, 2 Fortune 500 companies, I-78, I-476 to NYC and Philadelphia respectively. Less than 90 miles to NYC and less than 50 miles to Philadelphia. It looks good on paper when you do the review and you see no 3-4 star hotels flagged for this area.

King Ed of Reaissance Square will love this! Turn this building into apartments for the NY/NJ underclass. King Ed gets to collect campaign donations from the Chicago slumlord and then think of all those new Democratic voters in that building.

Ah, the old bait and switch. The guy throws names out there like Wyndham and then we get the downtown Hotel Traylor. I've lived in this town long enough to see through this deal. It's disappointing that once again this naive Mayor and his cheerleading newspaper are not more skeptical of this deal.
