While the article doesn't really break new ground it does end with this bit of "news":


"The tourism boom has helped spark new development. A 316-room Crowne Plaza Hotel is slated to open next door to the Hilton in 2015, taking over an overgrown lot that once housed a Norm's restaurant.


In the lobby of the proposed Crowne Plaza hotel, the anchor restaurant will be Smitty's Grill, which also has a location in Pasadena that serves American comfort food."
