135 rooms(Eastside Hotel) = 200-300 people, Bankhead Theater= 500 people, Livermore Cinemas= 300+ people equates to 1000-1100 or more, not counting workers, volunteers and other patrons to existing businesses. If placing the Hotel on the Westside is so bad, it only illustrates that Pleasanton prepares itself better for the future. At least if you stay at the Rose Hotel, leaving to attend our Firehouse Theater or finding dining creates a social interaction amongst our residents that Livermore’s will be without to showcase their Community. Thanks Pleasanton...did not realize we had it so good.
