Do you subscribe to the Toledo Blade lol?  Sits behind a paywall for me.   

Same for me. Guess I can't read their smack talk, oh well. #toledoisashithole

Toledo does have us beat on height, sadly.  Hopefully that will change soon

Goes to show that size isn't everything.

Whatever. Good for them that they look at us as a high water mark. :) I heard the Art museum is fantastic (and far surpasses ours).

The Toledo Art museum is stunning actually.  Built and endowed at a very different time in it's history.   I agree Grand Rapids should take that story as a compliment.  Though if I'm from Toledo I'm cringing that a local reporter touts a Hilton Garden Inn as a "leg up" over cities with dense vibrant downtowns, and a portfolio of  hotel brands.  Many of which are in  market segments above HGI.

haha no, but for some reason was able to scroll down and read for before it popped up, now it does immediately. Thought the comment was interesting who they consider peer cities and for what reasons. TBH Toledo has a lot of potential to be a cool spot, its on the lake, a major interstate crossroads and close proximity to a couple major metro areas not to mention history and cedar point...

Wait a minute, you can't give Cedar Point to Toledo, lol. It's way closer to Cleveland.

It's almost exactly half way between them...

Then you definitely can't bequeath it to Toledo. That'd be like saying Michigan's Adventure is a Grand Rapids feature.  But it's way closer to the Cleveland suburbs than Toledo suburbs. Of I'll put it this way, when you exit 280 in Toledo and start heading to Cedar Point, you're still over an hour away.
