How to find Vegas hot spots in the U.S.
As of Thursday, Vegas was still a hot spot for Las Vegas, but it wasn’t as hot as it was a year ago, according to data compiled by the U, U.K. and Canada.
The Globe and Mail has collected information on more than 700,000 hotel rooms and suites in the metro area from February through October.
While most hotels were busy during the week, it appears that some remained empty on weekends, too.
The data comes as Vegas continues to battle with the aftermath of the deadly Las Vegas mass shooting in October.
On Monday, the city declared a state of emergency.
The surge in cancellations is one of the most pronounced and alarming signs in a region that has been struggling with a surge in crime, particularly violence in the city’s downtown area.
A study released this month by the Nevada Office of Emergency Management found that the number of hotel room and suite cancellations in Vegas jumped by more than 50 per cent between November 2016 and the beginning of May 2017.
On Wednesday, the Las Vegas Police Department announced that the agency had recorded 1,939 hotel room cancellations and 468 hotel room reservations in May 2017, an increase of nearly 80 per cent from the same month in 2016.
The city’s Downtown Improvement District reported that it had received 885 hotel room, suite and condo reservations in June, up nearly 70 per cent since November.
The district’s chief financial officer, Bob Gage, said the numbers were an indication of “the real threat of crime and vandalism to the downtown area.”
Gage said that while there was no immediate plan to shut down casinos, the agency is monitoring the situation closely.
“The downtown area is a hotbed for criminal activity and there is a need for security and to have our city’s safety and security at all times at all points,” he said.
“Our downtown is not a place where people can just walk into a hotel room with their weapons.
It’s very important for us to make sure we are prepared to deal with that.”
Meanwhile, the hotel industry is struggling with an influx of visitors from China and the Middle East.
More than 50,000 foreign visitors and 60,000 locals visited Las Vegas during the first seven months of this year, according the Las Palmas Hotel Association.
Vegas is also home to the largest population of people living in poverty in the country.
According to data from the U., the city is home to about 7.5 million people in poverty, making it the fourth-most impoverished metropolitan area in the United States.
