New york 16000 new rooms while offer p2p skyrockets
New York will host 16,000 new rooms hotel in the next two years, while the P2P offer trips, going from 2,000 in 2010 to 27,000 rooms, although Vijay Dandapani, President of the Association of hotels of New York, says that some sources raise this figure to the 45,000.
These figures represent a growth of 1.250% in just five years, while the hotel offer has increased 20% in the same period from 85,000 to 102,000 rooms. However, as complaint Dandapani, “Airbnb activity, especially in the city centre, makes our RevPar (revenue per room available) levels increasingly lower”, so the company has become its biggest problem.
The President of New York’s hoteliers remembers that the rental of the residence using these channels “is illegal if the tenant not coexists with user and if it is for a period of less than 30 days”, according to confirmed News HOSTELTUR tourism in ’New York says that the majority of rentals of Airbnb are illegal’. This has become a common front in New York against Airbnb.
In addition, adds, “these apartments are located in residential buildings, some of them regulated but not to operate as hotels although so do so without security or the minimum service measures that should provide”.
Dandapani denies that the irruption of the P2P in New York may be due to insufficient hotel offer because “though it is the sixth city in the world in international arrivals, ranking leading London and Paris, occupies the third position for her accommodation, just 20 percent less than the London”. The city receives 12 million international tourists, of which 400,000 are Spanish, although adding Americans amounted to 56 million, (’New York more than 56 million tourists’).
