Since they can’t make running trains profitable, Amtrak is planning to build a hotel out of part of the Baltimore train station.
The station is a terrible location for a hotel and the project has been unable to attract private financing or even a *brand* (like Sheraton, Marriott, etc) in the past.
The best the piece can find an analyst to say about the project is that the hotel might get business if all the other hotels in Baltimore are full…
… Though I suppose they could get business from Amtrak stranding passengers. Heh.
