Wanna buy a hotel room? Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, which owns the Hotels Burnham, Allegro and Monaco, is opening a new condominium hotel in Printers Row, to be called The Morton. What's a "condo hotel?" Most of the rooms will be owned by individual investors, who share in the hotel's profits and can stay there free -- whenever it's not already rented. There are a few rooms left, ranging in price from the mid $100Ks to about half a mil. The International Herald Tribune reports that three other condo hotels are planned for the city, including the new Trump building and one planned for the Mag Mile.
