My understanding from league officials is that arena upgrades would be necessary for the Jackets to get the ASG. Perhaps they've made an exception or part of the Arena deal includes those upgrades, but I wouldn't get excited yet.
I'm not sure about the Arena issue but the downtown Columbus hotel room count is, a new Hilton is being built as we speak that will add 500 rooms for national and international events. It's such an important issue the 670 interstate is being reconfigured to accommodate the new hotel..
