The city will side with big business. They don't care about the residents.

The Hampton Inn has been an asset to Wheeling for years and the owner has been extremely thoughtful in keeping his business up to date. I'm sure his plan will be considerate of his neighbors.

I know that area well and this proposed area for a new road will probably make it very, very difficult for a fire truck to get up there. You cannot endanger people or their homes, asset or not.

Hampton Inn owner will probably have to deal with neighbors damaging property and harassment. No one in this city understands small business and the BS it has to put up with. No wonder no one wants to open a business IN the city of Wheeling.

There has to be an equitable compromise. The hotel and homeowners should be able to coexist with a sense of safety.

does this involve a big loan? If so what will happen when the boom goes bust? Stop the gambling and prostitution and save what is left of the Ohio Valley...vice is not a sound foundation for community and by not enforcing the law we attract bad people...

I have never stayed at this hotel but some casual checking reveals that the hotel gets wonderful reviews. Many out of towners rave about the great service, rooms, amenities, etc. Wheeling should be proud to have a business that obeys the law, draws tourists to spend money and creates jobs and tax revenue.

Why are the people of this area so anti-business? Don't they realize that business creates jobs and that, without jobs, there would be less tax revenue and few to no services?

Great job, Hampton Inn. Keep up the good work. I am very impressed with your reviews.

tdolan: Yes, I did move toFl, but left my heart in WV. You see I believe that Wheeling still has a chance to become much more that a rust belt magnet for carpetbaggers or wannabe politicians like your mayor, so I keep putting in my two cents because I care. So now you know.

That area has morph into major a commercial strip anyway.

mk has a point. The Wheeling hotel sector will be overbuilt once the gas drilling is complete. The lenders should be cautious.

This business man has done a great job, and he deserves our support. If we need to come up with an alternate road plan, it certainly couldn't be anymore time-wise than trying to reach people up in Tierra, or Clifton Heights or Triadelphia. IF it helps business and an alternate route for ER vehicles can be implemented JUST DO IT! It is a pretty building and it is needed and appreciated. Let's all come together. I <3 Hampton in Wheeling!

Many lenders got burned with overbuilding of commercial real estate in the past eg Texas. Once the drilling is complete and the pipelines in, hotel demand will decline dramatically in Wheeling. Oglebay seems to be getting the conference business with its new Lutz Center.
