Re: MLB announces Holiday Inn Hotels as official hotel of MLB and the Cincinnati Reds
What does MLB do if there isn't a Holiday Inn or IHG hotel around? Most of the visiting teams' hotels are in a city's DT or within a few miles of a ballpark.
There is a Holiday Inn in Covington but it's definitely not the Hyatt or Westin. Cleveland is a little better - they have an Express and a Crowne Plaza (used to be a Sheraton) - The Holiday Inn Lakeshore I'd stay away from (too close to the RTA and airport). What about the other MLB cities?
Of course, this could allow IHG to buy a hotel property in a MLB city downtown for the purpose of housing a team.
