A three-judge panel at the Court of Special Appeals in Annapolis heard arguments yesterday on the zoning approval for the proposed Wyndham Inner Harbor East Hotel.The challenge, filed by the Waterfront Coalition against the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, seeks to invalidate the zoning.Each side had 30 minutes to argue its case. Typically, decisions are rendered within six to eight weeks.In past action, the coalition -- made up of neighborhood groups from Fells Point, Butchers Hill, Canton and East Baltimore -- has sought to set aside the amendment of the Inner Harbor East Master Plan and to obtain an archaeological investigation of buried train tracks thought to be under the hotel site.

Marriott International Inc. will replace troubled hotel chain Wyndham International Inc. as the operator of a 31-story hotel east of the Inner Harbor, ending months of speculation about the brand of the city's only major lodging project under construction.City officials said yesterday that the involvement by Bethesda-based Marriott in the 750-room hotel will significantly boost the marketing of the Baltimore Convention Center, which, despite a $151 million expansion and upgrade, has been struggling with a lack of bookings.

Amid continuing financial struggles that cloud the company's future, doubts have arisen over whether Wyndham International Inc. will continue its involvement in a $117 million hotel under construction east of the Inner Harbor.Sources familiar with the 750-room hotel said Wyndham has privately told the project's developers -- baking magnate John Paterakis Sr.'s H&S Properties Development Co. and a pair of Atlanta firms -- that it plans to cut ties to the project.If the Dallas hotel company pulls out of its commitment to put its name on the 31-story hotel, it would jeopardize an agreement between the city and the lodging project's developers at a time when millions of dollars in economic development incentives are at stake.

Rawlings decided yesterday to put off his attempt to block the controversial Wyndham tower east of the Inner Harbor.But Rawlings, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, still wants to force the city to get voter approval for both publicly subsidized hotels.The Baltimore Democrat introduced a bill that would require a referendum, even as he said the administration of Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke had relieved "some of the pressure" by backing a second hotel beside the Convention Center.

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge has ruled that a lawsuit to block construction of a 31-story Wyndham Hotel in Inner Harbor East may proceed, but he has declined to stop the hotel's progress while the suit goes forward.In an opinion issued Wednesday, Circuit Judge Richard T. Rombro dismissed a similar suit brought by the Scarlett Place Residential Condominium Association and the Waterfront Coalition, an umbrella group of nine homeowner and business groups, saying the groups lacked standing to challenge the procedures the City Council followed when it passed two bills in December to make way for the hotel.
