The eight full service hotels near the Santa Clara Convention Center and Great America are averaging 75 percent occupancy in 2010 and that is up 12-percent over last year.
And hotels aren't cutting rates to do it. According to the Santa Clara Convention and Visitors Bureau, average daily room rates are $120 this year compared to $113 last year.
Steve Van Dorn, President and CEO of the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce and Convention-Visitors Bureau said the number show that people are traveling for business and attending meetings again.
In case you were wondering the big hotels are:
- Embassy Suites
- Hotel Sierra
- Hyatt Regency
- Plaza Suites
Those numbers will clearly jump big time when the 49ers build a stadium in the center of the city. That is scheduled to happen 2014.
