ence Friday discussed how in creased cooperation between states could encourage economic expansion and boost foreign trade Labor Secretary W Willard The trend f to motels in town Even the npme is changing By RICHARD SPONG O lobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Whats the difference between a hotel and a motel The question becomes pertin ent with the invasion of the cities by socalled motor inns or motor lodges as management wants them to be called Motel as a word seems to be going the way of funeral parlor and for the same snobbish reason According to Michael Frome author of Better Vacations for Your Money some 1500 new motels are opened each year Another source puts the number in operation across the country in mid1962 at Motels in Manhattan started with the Skyline Motor Inn at Tenth Avenue and 49th St opened in December 1959 Four more quickly followed all on the West Side The advantage were obvious to the builder relatively cheap real estate to1 the guest easy access from tun nels and bridges convenient free parking location close to the river and the West Side docks Now the motels are pushing into midtown The Howarc Johnson Motor Lodge on Eighth Ave at 51st St went into busi ness earlier this year and in midDecember Loews Hotels which operates that one is open ing the Midtown Motor Inn a Eighth Ave between 58th and 49th Sts And ground was broken in September for Broadways first hotelmotel also a Loews project Cost is no factor in the distinc tion between motel and hotel jWiriz told the governors that he intends to propose that all 50 chief state executives create manpower advisory committees to tackle the problem of unem ployment This unemployment problem is a great many different prob lems Wirtz said and in many 53000 750 500 250 S3nmoo soo

a staff as it were called a hotel Nor is it size The new million Loews motel will have 21 stories It stands on a 33333 squarefoot plot Nor is the answer accomoda tions All guest rooms in the Broadway motel will haveself dial telephones and free radio and television Also it will have a specialty restaurant cocktail lounge coffee shop an outdoor swimming pool and health club For their part a good many hotels have swimming pools and the newer ones are provid ing parking accomodations And there isnt much dif ference in rates Rtfoms in the motels run from about to a day in line with those at most midtown hotels The annual dollar volume of motels passed that of hotels in 1960 The hotel industry long ago look note of what was happening and look steps to meet the com petition Now more than half the countrys city hotels are re presented on the highways by motor inns or lodges as even in the country they like to call their motels The insistence of management on this kind of proliferation is sometimes astonishing Stock holders of a Harrisburg Pa hotel holding company about a year ago voted down a manage ment plan to acquire land out side the city for a motel largely because of the high price of the proposed acreage Not long ago management announced that it would lease other land for a motel The reason is interesting In addition to the outlying motels the city is being invaded by two motor inns CHEER FUND GOAL PREVIOUSLY REPORTEU PUoi Club In Memory of Mark R W Brinstid Fores City John Bob and Steve Frank A Kohler floo Joyce Kilmer Club Chautauqui Club JioO Amy and Lon 500 THE
