Yeah, good point... I seem to recall that this was mentioned as one of the big reasons that the ill-fated P&M hotel was slated to get what was it, Le Meridien branding? To be part of the SPG group. Apparently Winnipeg is one of if not the only NHL market where the players don't stay at a Starwood hotel?

I guess Westin makes sense, but I suppose it could be Sheraton too, those are probably the two most common downtown big-city Starwood brands. I thought it was odd that Asper was chasing Le Meridien for P&M when we didn't have a Westin or Sheraton first.

I have to admit I am a SPG point nerd myself so I can understand the appeal of taking this approach.
