What U.S. City Has the Most Hotel Guests?

By August 1, 2007

Follow me on:

A few days ago, Forbes Traveler.com came out with a list of the 30 most visited cities in the United States. The list itself is interesting to peruse, but of course not all visitors to a city book a hotel room. So out of curiosity, I rearranged the list. Conspicuously missing is New Orleans, where bookings have been severely impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Here are cities that sold the most hotel rooms, with links to the hotels I recommend there:
  1. The winner: Las Vegas, with 40 million hotel rooms sold last year.
  2. Orlando (27.2 million)
  3. Los Angeles (25.5 million)
  4. Chicago (24.8 million)
  5. New York City (23.9 million)
  6. Washington, DC (22.8 million)
  7. Atlanta (21.5 million)
  8. Dallas (15.9 million)
  9. Houston (14.5 million)
  10. San Diego (14.2 million)
  11. Phoenix (13.1 million)
  12. San Francisco (13.4 million)
  13. Anaheim (13.9 million
  14. Miami (11.2 million)
  15. Boston (11.7 million)
  16. Philadelphia (10.2 million)
  17. Tampa Bay (9.6 million)
  18. Seattle (9.4 million)
  19. Denver (8.7 million)
  20. San Antonio (8.3 million)

Myrtle Beach, 10 million visitors?! That’s surprising. Its because all 10 million of those visitor don’t BUY hotel rooms…. you have to figure that some of them stay with friends and family.
