"Groups will not come here without that hotel. They just won't," said White, vice president of sales and marketing for the Greater Phoenix Convention & Visitors Bureau, in the article.
The City Council votes June 16 on "whether to move forward on a publicly funded hotel, targeted to open by 2008 when Civic Plaza's expansion is completed."
