Interstate Hotels & Resorts began laying off its 52 employees at the Comfort Inn on Baltimore Annapolis Blvd. in the Linthicum area last week and will continue through the end of the year as it temporarily shuts down the hotel and its restaurant for major renovations. DynCorp International, a federal contractor based in Northern Virginia, warned Maryland officials that it would lay off 74 employees in Lexington Park.

Two gunmen got away with cash, a loaded coin tray and likely the most-stolen item of any motel - its towels - during the robbery of a Comfort Inn near Annapolis late Friday. Police said the robbers took the towels first - using them as masks when they jumped over the counter and ordered a clerk to turn over the money. They fled the Old Mill Bottom Road motel, apparently on foot, carrying the cash and coins in a motel trash can, police said. The Comfort Inn's general manager, Jim Crouch, said the robbery was the second in the motel's 11 years of operation.

A check of court records two years ago might have saved Baltimore taxpayers millions of dollars on the city's sweeping west-side renewal effort. City officials agreed in late 2002 to pay $8.7 million for the Paramount Hotel, at 8 N. Howard St., which the city seized through eminent domain to make way for luxury apartments. That price - almost three times the $3 million the Paramount sold for in 1999 after it was targeted for condemnation - was based on appraisals that relied on the faulty assumption that the owner was getting a valuable Comfort Inn franchise he never got because he never finished renovations demanded by the hotel chain.
