Hyatt-Regency Crown Center To Change to A Sheraton Hotel

The Hyatt-Regency hotel is slated to change names and operators- according to a story in the KANSAS CITY (MO) BUSINESS JOURNAL.

The Hyatt- built in 1980- is infamously known for the lobby skywalk collapse on July 17-1981 that killed 114 people.

The KCBJ say that 337 jobs are in the lurch as the hotel switches affiliations on November 30.

The KCBJ story also states that the change will mean that Hyatt Hotels won't have any presence in Kansas City- but goes on to say how the chain is awaiting putting their name on a proposed (and likely heavily-taxpayer-subsidized) 1000-room convention hotel.

Tell you what SD-

With ALL these taxpayer-subsidized businesses now and the state of the economy- approving such ANOTHER white elephant would literally be political suicide.

Run THIS crap up the flagpole and watch their flag be burned!
