Will Travelers Still Go To Sochi?

To be expected after an Olympics winds down is the often asked question of: Will people still come?.  The NYT had an article earlier this week about that exact question.  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/02/travel/with-games-gone-will-travelers-still-go-to-sochi.html?ref=travel

 

Marriott opened a FS property in Sochi just prior to the Olympic games so they are surely hoping tourists keep coming.  Original plans had Marriott opening a JW and CY there as well (Marriott International to Open Three Hotels in Sochi, Russia - Marriott News Center), but that looks to have not happened.  Maybe expectations were tempered for long term sustainability of three properties.

 

Anyone have Sochi on their travel list?
