But, this just in from City Hall: The council has yet again put off approving Omni as the hotel's operator. No word on why, only that "staff has some more work to do" before the council can give its final okee-doke. Sam has mentioned that Bill Marriott also wants a shot at the contract, but so far, no word on whether his bid is being considered.
