Is the Rogers Hotel building in downtown Wheeling worth renovating?
Stay at the Rogers, count the number of hookers pimps and dealers at the 7-Eleven? Talk a walk and get mugged? boxer:The demise of the Rogers may work to save the Fort Henry which really is a jewel worth saving.The "City of Parking Lots" look is not appealing.

Save the Fort Henry building which is an historic property; that building which was once the home to an Olgebay daughter and then a private club.
My widowed grandmother spent several years working as a cook at the Fort Henry Club in the early 1920's.
Sorry for dissing the Roger's Hotel building but why is anyone interested in restoring a structure which would need a tremendous amount of money to bring into code and then wouldn't be able to compete in the modern lodging market due to the substandard size of most of their rooms. I've been in the hotel business and the location of this building, the age and size of most rooms---lots of luck in bringing this back to a productive life.
