Shreveport/Bossier City, La (KMSS) — As of today, there are now 10,000 hotel rooms available in the Shreveport and Bossier City areas.
Shreveport and Bossier City celebrated its 10,000th hotel room mark this evening with the grand opening of a popular hotel.
Homewood Suites by Hilton opened its doors for business this evening in a small ceremony that included Representatives from the City of Shreveport along with the mayor of Bossier City.
The opening now puts hotel rooms available in both Shreveport and Bossier City in a position to attract a bigger convention market.
“A lot of large conventions will not consider a destination unless there are 10,000 rooms or more. Now, we are able to approach those meeting planners that were unavailable to us before,” said Dianna Douglas, Regional Sales Manager at the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau.
