    Mayor Bloomberg announced on 12/31/12 that visitors increased 2.1% over 2011 to a record 52 million. NYC & Company announced that there were 91,500 hotel rooms and 2012 occupancy was a record 87%, even though 17 new hotels opened. There are a number of ways to figure this but the bottom line is that NYC has by far the worst shortage of hotel rooms in the world. Considering even conservative increases in visitors (not likely as the new WTC opens soon), even with new records in new rooms added, the shortage will almost inevitably worsen and, in comparison to other cities known for shortages. NYC will lose ground. There are various estimates as to the number of hotels but, without getting references out right now, just a search on will turn up about 750. Some listings are in New Jersey and out of the city on Long Island but probably 90% of them are in the city, though not necessarily in Manhattan.
