Wikipedia:
Orlando has the second largest number of hotel rooms in the country (after Las Vegas, Nevada), and is one of the busiest American cities for conferences and conventions with the Orange County Convention Center, the country's second largest in square footage.

Its not the number 1 tourist destination it prolly just got the most visitors last year. That doesn't mean that everyone wants to go to NYC over anywhere else. It probably means that the northerners couldn't afford to travel down south this year due to the economy and had to settle for a vacation up north. ha jking. but can you post the site so i can see the full list? I'm curious to see the rankings of other cities.

And why are you making such a big deal out of this? Rankings change depending on who ranks them. Every list i see is always different Ive seen NYC over Orlando in plenty of lists, and vise versa. You can't really name one place as the number 1 place.

Was starting this thread really necessary other than for a reason to brag? I mean, i would understand if you posted it in the NYC forum because I'm sure the people who live there would like to know but the general US doesn't really care.

Big difference.

There is a reason Orlando has more hotel rooms than NY does. And as I mentioned earlier, so do Vegas and Atlanta. Most of their visitors don't live within driving distance, like many of NY's do.

Atlanta.
91,869 hotel rooms at 743 properties – 64.7 percent overall occupancy

True. That's why no one ever compliments or praise NYC because they unnecessarily boast and put down other cities when there is no need for it.

That article says NYC got 42.25 million visitors. Orlando had 48.89 million visitors in 2008 (2009 numbers aren't out yet, but they wont be under 42 million). estinmates are 44 million due to the economy being so bad in 2009. But its fore casted to make a turn around this next year.

We poster dont think the world revolves around NYC thats why we are happy we got other places to choose from and if We dont wanna live in USA theres Canada Europe and every other place to live and visit. You NYC poster dont have to boost the city. Everyone knows its the largest city etc.... and it has this and that. What is the point of this thread? Is it to prove something? I really dont understand. Are maybe its to say ( Yea orlando we got you this year haha in your face) some childish like activity. Thats what I am getting out of this.

New York has held for the longest time the highest average room rate and the highest occupancy rate in the entire country. Before the recession the average nightly occupancy rate would top over 90% and room rate would be over $350 per night on average. Having worked in hotel management for over 10 years back in 90's and early 2000's I can state that this is insanely successful. If these others cities had rates this high they would be lucky to have 30% occupancy.
If New York had $79 a night room rate like the others how many more visitors would they have? The expense keeps many away. Also, land and construction cost in New York are very high. This keeps the supply down and the prices up. I hope this answers your question.
If NY had $79 rates the hotels would be out of business so this is really not a valid argument.

Orlando Visitor Volume

No one can say who will get the most this year, but NY is expected to have a few more million. Don't forget, the new Freedom tower is being built, and a lot of people are drawn to seeing that.
