HOTEL JEFFERSON IN THE NEWS AGAIN
I realize not everyone attended our Senior Party after graduation, but I did and remember it well. The Hotel Jefferson has a checkered history and has been shuttered for ages; every time there is a new proposal to reopen it, I begin dreaming of a class reunion there just for nostalgia's sake! In recent years there have been several plans put forth to refurbish/reopen/reuse it but none has come to fruition. Here is an article about the current status. This article says it was published 12/21/17 but I am looking at the 12/22 paper and the lead article in the Business Section has this article and the photo. A Marriott would be great, but as the lead article on 12/22 points out, there are already a LOT of hotel rooms in St. Louis, and if all 9 current proposals came to be, there would be 1200+ additional hotel rooms downtown, and can we really support that? Many people, including me, think not. We just don't have the draw we once did...anyway, I thought some of you might find this of interest if you follow any of our local "issues".
