New York City

New York State’s hotel industry has experienced a decade of strong growth, driven by an increase in tourism. A record number of visitors (227.5 million) came to New York State in 2014, and a new record was likely set in 2015. To accommodate the increased demand, more than 45,000 hotel rooms were added across the State between 2006 and 2015. Most of the rooms were added in New York City. In 2015, New York City had more than 107,000 hotel rooms, 48 percent more than in 2006. The industry plans to add another 26,500 rooms by the end of 2019.
