DANBURY, Conn. -- Danbury construction crews are set to break ground this year on a new hotel, according to a report from the News Times.
Danbury has more hotel rooms per capita than any other municipality in Connecticut, Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce President Stephen Bull said in the News Times report.
"That's a remarkable statistic and economic indicator," Bull said in the News Times story. "It's a barometer of the current and future strength of our economy. Hoteliers aren't speculators. The fact that they are putting money into new hotel rooms says a lot."
Hotels in the Danbury and Stamford areas, which are often lumped together for industry statistics, have the highest occupancy rates in the state, said officials with the Connecticut Lodging Association, according to the News Times report.
