A partial web site is up
It appears CommRow's new name will be 'Whitney Peak Hotel.' I first heard the rumor then discovered the web site here by doing a little digging. Thoughts on the new name?
Another name that was tossed around but apparently not used was 'Altitude.'
The new name is interesting, I hope they base their new theming and decor to match the name.
According to the web site, they will be adding 'Executive Concierge Level accommodations; private lounge; upgraded amenities including flat-screen TVs, complimentary Continental Breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres'. It also appears Cargo will be keeping its name, and the 'historic landmark hotel' will be fully renovated. Also look for a 'Coffee bar and full-service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.'
Mount Whitney is the highest summit in the contiguous United States with an elevation of 14,505 feet. It's located in California, by Bishop. The first known ascent to the peak was August 18, 1873.
