New York City’s hotel expansion reflects the energy and economic growth throughout the five boroughs. By 2011, NYC hotel inventory will exceed 90,000 rooms. Manhattan will gain almost half of these new rooms, while new properties in Queens, Staten Island, Brooklyn and the Bronx will account for the remaining inventory. Whether you’re planning for 3,000 attendees or a conference of six, room blocks are available citywide, from the bustle of Times Square to a 415-acre game preserve on Staten Island. The choices in New York City are as varied as they are exciting.
