Hilton's problems reflect those of the city as a whole

Of course the city-owned Hilton Baltimore is in financial trouble, but it may not even be its fault ("Hilton again loses millions," June 27).

Until this changes, look for more businesses failing or leaving. Promises from the mayor are just words in the wind.
