Will Sheraton Rooftop Ever Spin Again?

In 1968 the Hyatt hotel chain reported that every new hotel they built was going to have a revolving restaurant on top. In 1973 they built the Hyatt Regency as part of the Broadway (now Macy's) Plaza, and sure enough it had a restaurant on top. These days, though, the hotel's changed hands (it's now the Sheraton) and the restaurant's closed up.

Last May, when Sheraton took over as operator, a $10 million renovation plan was announced. I don't know whether those plans include bringing the rooftop back to life, but I certainly hope they do. I have to think that over the next five to ten years that would be a great vantage point to keep an eye on South Park's development.
