19400 rooms in 2007 in Amsterdam
29000 in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area
+/- 50000 rooms in the Randstad (hard to define where the borders are)

In the city of Amsterdam 81% of the time they are full (as far as I know only London has a higher percentage in Europe). The upcoming years more than 10.000 (10.000 - 13.000 are needed according to recent studies) additional rooms will be build.

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.
nops, city and metro maybe different in Spain or just an attempt to expand the population, in your neigbouring country, Portugal, it is very different, the distinction between city and metro is really blurred. in fact, it is meaningless to talk about Lisbon or Porto referring only to the proper municipalities.

the real city of Porto is composed of distinct 6 municipalities and accounted as several cities and towns. Yes, it is cahotic, and it has to do with politics, but in real life these function as the same city in every aspect of life, including people's perception.

Some 30000 in Barcelona, I don't have any exact number. Intrestingly the city only had about half or 16000 rooms as late as 1999-2000. So the city has been ading about 2000 hotelrooms every year since.

Some interesting comparison:

Comunidad Valenciana (Spain)
Région PACA (France)

Both regions share a pretty much similar profile :
- rigourously equals in terms of inhabitants (4,8M each)
- Valencia vs Marseilles
- Alicante-Elche conurbation vs Nice-Grasse-Cannes-Antibes conurbation
- Costa Blanca vs Côte d'Azur ;
- same natural setting as a mediterranean littoral with a mountainous hinterland
- high touristic destinations
And especially both chambers of tourism provide detailed informations and datas about their bedding capacity

# of beds in HOTELS
Com. Valenciana = 118 849 (2008)
Région PACA = 138 678 (2007)

# of beds in TOURISM RESIDENCES
Com. Valenciana = 102 491 (2006)
Région PACA = 131 640 (2007)

# of beds in CAMPSITES
Com. Valenciana = 62 539 (2006)
Région PACA = 296 355 (2007)

This is the most striking difference between both regions. The explanation can be that Spaniards are not very fond of camping during our holidays. If you go to a campsite in Spain, the vast majority of people are foreign tourists.

How is the "Tourist Arrivals" number calculated? I'm trying to understand the strange numbers and their relevance to the thread. There are conventions in Atlanta with up to 100,000 attendees, so 477,000 tourist arrivals seems a bit low.

I don't know how it has been calculated, but I think it refers to international visitors.

The "tourist arrivals" they mean international arrivals only.
