The Number of Hotel Rooms in Major Cities

I started this thread because there could be many major cities with over 10,000 hotel rooms. I don't know the city with the most hotel rooms, but the city with that distinction is probably Las Vegas, Nevada. It has about 140,000 of them. There is a requirement that Olympic host cities must have at least 40,000 hotel rooms in the 3-star, 4-star, and 5-star categories.

And I bet you probably don't know how many hotel rooms are in London, Paris, New York, or Tokyo.

My data are about the city of Madrid, not the metropolitan area. City and metropolitan area of that city are completely different things, at least in Europe. A metropolitan area consists of towns or smaller cities that have nothing to do with the main city (Madrid in this case). They are near the main city or not so near, that's all. And they have their own hotels, local governments, etc etc.

Alcalá de Henares (200,000 inhabitants) at 31 km from Madrid, belongs to Madrid metropolitan area. It doesnt seem logical to consider its hotel rooms as belonging to Madrid.

The metro area number was the only one I could locate for Atlanta. It seems that most people in this forum place more importance on CSA/MSA statistics than that of city proper...

Combined Statistical Area/Metropolitan Statistical Area...the MSA includes more area and higher population than CSA. MSA is defined as:

Quote:
one or more adjacent counties or county equivalents that have at least one urban core area of at least 50,000 population, plus adjacent territory that has a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties.

If that is aimed at me, in some cases considering only the city proper would be irrelevant.

From the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau

http://www.neworleanscvb.com

Quote:
There are 33,500 hotel rooms available in New Orleans, including small boutique treasures in the French Quarter, charming bed and breakfast properties, major downtown hotel towers and much more. Thanks to practically city-wide hotel refurbishments and upgrades, New Orleans has one of the freshest hotel products of any major city. According to Greater New Orleans Inc., $400 million has been spent on hotel upgrades and renovations in the metro New Orleans area.

On June 4, 2008, the Hilton Hotels Corporation announced plans to redevelop the former Fairmont New Orleans, also known as “The Roosevelt,” as part of the Waldorf Astoria Collection. Completion and opening is scheduled for late spring of 2009.

Paris is the only city in the world that has more hotel rooms than Las Vegas?

It seems so from what I've found as yet.

Paris : 78 755 rooms (city proper) ; 154 745 (area) (as of 2005, source : OTCP)
Las Vegas : 136 733 rooms as of May 2008 (source : LVCVA) ; some 150 000 in the whole Clark County
NYC : 73 333 rooms as of Feb. 2008 (source : NYC Statistics)
Greater London : 101 269 as of 2001 (source : GLA) ; probably 112 000 by now considering current growth

I will add Tokyo soon.
