Did Duggan say WHY it doesn't make sense to compare paying $30 million for this thing with the $0 Google and $19 million Hyatt proposals?

prm- read the last five paragraphs for the answer to your question about Google. Abe-Koga and the rest of the union council members will block any deal with a non-union hotel. Worse, they're willing to spend 30 million of your dollars to do it.

Agree we need a full service hotel, unclear why Google not steopping up to have a stake in the project they will benefit from it, let them kick in the 30M Also on a different hotel issue, does the City have any plans for that 'Hotel' in downtown Mtn View on Evelyn (Pacific Euro)? As Bette Davis would say 'what a dump' Couldn't they work with one of the Kimpton or JDV Hotels to develop a Boutique hotel in that location? I bet it would be popular for visitors (both business and on vacation) being close to Cal Train, restaurants, etc. Better than being isolated up on El Camino or off of 101.
