The data back us up as well. A recent survey by BedandBreakfast.com asked visitors of the site, “What was their favorite Summer destination?”
And the top destination for B&B travelers for 2012… New York City! That’s right; the Big Apple is the top destination for those who stay in B&Bs. Over 67 percent of B&B travelers are planning to return to a destination they have visited before, and 54 percent are again staying in a B&B.
In fact, the data showed that most travelers say B&Bs “provide more value than hotels (71%) and would choose a B&B over a hotel if both were available for the same nightly rate (84%). “
Most of the time, B&Bs conjure up images of a small New England town or Napa Valley Wine country, but the reality is 23 percent of B&Bs are located in urban areas just like New York City. StayNYC is dedicated to protecting these B&Bs by working with elected officials to make sure that our registered B&Bs remain exempt from any illegal hotel legislation.
