    extreme winter conditions are so 1970, global warming baby! sure would be nice if we got some rain though.

    Our second highest monthly snowfall total ever was in February 2010. 3 of the last 4 winters have been colder than normal and 2012-13 is also looking to be so.

    When marketing to convention groups, a metric they tend to care about is rooms attached to the conference center. With the skywalk, the Hilton is “attached.” Without it, it is not attached.

    Plus who wants those salt and water stains on their suede shoes?

    Reminds me of the Hynes Convention center in Boston. The Hynes is connected to Copley Place Mall, which is connected to 3 hotels. So when booking a hotel room, I chose one of those 3 hotels (because it was “connected”), not knowing I chose the furthest one with a 20 minute walk through a mall and various skybridges to reach the convention center. But I was glad to take the skybridge/air conditioned walk toting all my convention gear everyday vs the 95+ degree weather outside.

    Last year we had our first below zero temp in about five years. Average temps are revised each 5 years and they are steadily warming. 2010 was a high snowfall year but warming temps means more moisture in the air (in cities the heat island exacerbates this) and therefore more snow when a cold front does move through. 2010’s snowfall record maybe an exception or it could be another example or warming winter temps leading to move snowfall.

    In the last 10 years our winters have been more zone 6 (0 F) or 7 (+5 F) than zone 5 (-10 F) where we actually used to reside.

    Praise Cthulhu for global warming.

    I got to take a quick tour of the Hilton yesterday and here are some of the shots. I am very afraid of heights so walking on the narrow walkway 12 stories up was a bit much for me.

    No problem! Its such a simple looking building from the outside but the interior tells a whole other story. I love the all glass nooks that the bulding has on the upper floors…you can see for miles!

    New hotels in mid- to upper-level market
    By Steve Wartenberg

    In the Short North. At Port Columbus. Near Ohio State University. All over town, new hotels are in the works or are under construction.

    Hotel construction is up nationally, too, by 10.5 percent in June, compared with the previous year, according to STR Pipeline Report. Growth is happening here, but at a slower rate, according to a local expert.
