There's never been the snob issue like you seem to want to replay. It's about quality of life. It's about getting away from gridlock traffic and overcrowding. I have pride in my hometown and large hotels are ugly, not the people that stay in them (although there will be carloads of that type come spring break). Again, I smell hypocrisy. If this structure was going up next door to you, I doubt you would be defending it.
