Who wins big if San Diego expands its Convention Center? The mega hotels next door.
The three hotels, the Manchester Grand Hyatt, Marriott Marquis Hotel & Marina and the Hilton Bayfront, would reap $273 million in new revenue in the six years after the expansion opened, a consultant’s report says.
The report indicates the money comes with little risk. A hotel-room tax hike needed to pay for the expansion won’t affect business at the three hotels, says the study completed by a Unified Port of San Diego consultant.
