This strikes me as a bit optimisitic: New Orleans Hotels: Hotel InterContinental New-Orleans, Louisiana, USA:

The InterContinental New Orleans is scheduled to reopen on Monday, 12th September, provided that electricity and potable water are being received by the hotel.

I looked out of curiousity because I, and some of the readers out there, are supposed to go to the Southern Political Science Association meeting at the Inter-Continental in January.

I am having a hard time seeing that happen, but certainly being open in two weeks seems highly unlikely.

Of course, they have a proviso in their statement, and to me it would seem that that is huge proviso.

    Well, since the governor is saying that people won’t even be allowed back into the city in two weeks’ time it will be a good trick.

  2. Bryan S. Says:

    Yeah. That’s *real* wishful thinking.

    If I were the SPSA, I’d have been on the phone *monday* looking at alternative sites. Mid-January isn’t a big convention time, so they probably could find someplace.
