Comment of the day

"Convention organizers and convention goers want access to cheap hotel rooms. They want to pay $60 to $120 per night. That is why, over the last 20-25 years, Las Vegas gets such a large percentage of the mega conventions. Las Vegas also offer 100,000+ hotel rooms. Miami Beach hotels cannot offer 10,000+ vacant hotel rooms. Worse, the average room price on South Beach is $200-$400+ per night. Miami Beach cannot attract large mainstream conventions. Mayor Levine and the Commissioners are smart to terminate the previously approved scheme. It was the wrong answer to a difficult question."-anon [Convention Center Developer Reminds Levine That He Is, In Fact, Under Contract]
