Sarah Tully of The Orange County Register reports that Anaheim is the fastest-growing market for hotel occupancy.
The hotel hike feeds the city’s coffers, as bed taxes make up the largest chunk of the city’s budget. In the 2000-2001 fiscal year, the city collected $58.1 million in bed taxes, a total that slipped the next year. By last fiscal year, though, the number hit $75.5 million – almost $5 million over budget projections.
Anaheim beat out Oahu, Hawaii and Miami, Florida.
