Q. -Why’re there so many hotels coming to Terrell? Current ones are always empty so whats the need of new ones?

Answer – Thanks for your inquiry.

The City works with and encourages new hotel development as part of our goal of attracting customers to town and encouraging commercial activity.

The marketplace for hotel rooms is a very diverse market. As you can imagine, families and individuals traveling for social, vacation and leisure reasons have a variety of different needs and price points. Likewise, business travelers are as varied as there are types of businesses with different budgets, needs and length of stay. The current hotels in Terrell have a healthy track record of occupancy indicating the Terrell market for hotel rooms is strong. The new hotels are being built by private investors with an aim to capture travelers who may not be choosing to stay in Terrell.

These new hotels are simply aiming for different consumers and we expect them to be very successful.

Sincerely,

D.J. Ory, Mayor
