Council considers buying hotel


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Cedar Rapids city officials are considering buying the Crowne Plaza Five Seasons hotel.

Mayor Ron Corbett said Thursday that since the city is building a new convention center next door and upgrading a nearby arena, it would make sense to buy the hotel.

In recent weeks, city officials have suggested the Crowne Plaza be purchased for about 3-million dollars.

The city already owns the land the hotel is built on.
