According to this article over at Thisweek, a long time Burnsville hotel known for cheesy themed rooms that apparently have failed to do much to attract the tourists that Burnsville so desperately wants, will be replaced with a large office building.
But wait, they aren’t planning on having any of that happen until they can find tenants for the grand structure that is planned to replace what was the South Metro’s first hotel… In the mean time, they will continue to keep open this hotel which offers 90 rooms, a third of which are themed to attract those interested in “romance”. Nothing to me says romance than a 2.5 star hotel (according to Google via 25 reviews) in a boring suburb, overlooking MN-13 and 35W, surrounded by such fine dining as Hooters, Perkins, a Burger King, and some random strip mall based establishments of no notable worth. It would appear that the owners plan on following the advice of one of the Tripadvisor reviewers who said, “tear it down and start over” while rating the location with one star. Sounds like a great idea to me!
What I want to know is why this is news? According to this “article” there are only plans for an office structure at this location and at this point no tenants available. We get several paragraphs that mention the rooms and the history of the hotel rather than the future outlook of the location. Seems to me that this was nothing more than a free(?) advertisement for the hotel with a little fluff thrown in to make it “news”. Nice.
Hey Thisweek, let’s keep trash like this out of your articles and stick to actual news ok? This type of shit really diminishes the value of your brand. Shame on you.
