Hotel bookings by convention or business groups rose nearly 16 percent in the past fiscal year, Baltimore's convention and tourism agency said Monday. The Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association said the 522,541 room nights booked for group business meetings between this year and 2019 beat the tourism agency's goal of 500,000 room nights. The number exceeded the 451,608 hotel nights booked in fiscal 2008 for future years, BACVA said. "One of the major initiatives and goals is long-term, citywide convention sales" - or sales to groups that might require as many as 4,000 to 5,000 rooms on peak nights, said Tom Noonan, chief executive and president of BACVA.

Developers of a Ritz-Carlton hotel in the Inner Harbor will present another plan to city design reviewers today that may call for a smaller project than originally proposed. The developers, who've generated several plans for the luxury hotel to appease local officials and residents concerned about preserving the area's views and character, will make a pitch to the city's Design Advisory Panel. Panel members will make a recommendation to city planners, once they've seen the project's concept, said Bob Quilter, an architect in the city's planning department and coordinator for the panel.

Bolstered by the news that a developer wants to build a downtown hotel without public money, dozens of people urged the Baltimore City Council yesterday to vote against the mayor's plan to give $25 million in tax breaks to developers of another proposed downtown hotel.It was a last-ditch, pull-out-the-stops effort from opponents of the Wyndham Inner Harbor East hotel, who for months have used any argument available to try to thwart the city's plan to build the 750-room project."If we have so many people willing to come here, why are we willing to give the farm away?"

As members of the Baltimore City Council weigh a proposal for a convention center hotel, the city's most expensive public project to date, they are trying to make sense from seemingly conflicting information. If Baltimore is attracting worldwide attention as a tourist destination, why can't city officials find a suitable private developer to build the hotel? After subsidizing two other major hotels in Baltimore, why is city ownership of a hotel smarter than giving incentives to developers?

A year to the day after the city first unveiled Robert L. Johnson's plan for a headquarters hotel in Baltimore, the founder of Black Entertainment Television yesterday won the mayor's blessing to build it. Johnson's firm, RLJ Development LLC of Bethesda, and Quadrangle Development Corp. will have a six-month exclusive negotiating priority to build a $200 million, 750-room Hilton just north of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The hotel is designed to boost attendance at the city's flagging convention center.

The most famous view in Baltimore - the cityscape seen from Camden Yards - appears likely to change soon with the construction of a $200 million convention anchor hotel just north of the stadium. Nearly a year after a splashy City Hall announcement by Black Entertainment Television mogul Robert L. Johnson that he wanted to build a headquarters hotel in Baltimore, the city's quasi-public development agency has endorsed his development team's proposal over two others that have since applied for the job. The hotel is viewed by city leaders and meeting experts as an urgently needed resource to help build business at Baltimore's economically lagging convention center, which was expanded recently at a cost of $151 million.

On a downtown street, with the bright sunshine and a television camera on his face, Neil Fisher promised Maryland a lavish, $100 million Ritz-Carlton hotel, hundreds of jobs and a fortune for a charity aiming to "build back the glory of Baltimore."His message appealed to many. "People need hope and something to dream for," he concluded in his pledge to help make Baltimore better.But what the public didn't see on that October day were the other sides of Fisher: the tough-talking real-estate syndicator accused of multimillion-dollar fraud; the repeatedly bankrupt developer who says he likes the sport of being sued; the snakeskin-booted land dealer whose partner on the Ritz deal was once convicted alongside Maryland's most infamous swindler, Jeffrey A. Levitt.

ALTHOUGH THE Baltimore Development Corp. has not announced which of three developers will win its backing to construct a large hotel downtown, this much is clear:The city's long-awaited "convention hotel" is not likely to be next to the expanded Baltimore Convention Center.One clear outcome of the bidding process is that developers have little or no interest in building a hotel next to the Convention Center, even though the city owns land for construction of such a project.Of the three groups bidding to build a hotel, all control sites that are at least three blocks east of the Convention Center.
