Hotels, resorts and other establishments earn high marks with their clients not just because of their service and amenities, but because of their established reputation and appearance.
People can be attracted to hotels and resorts due to their facade, which plays a very important role in bookings. Cleverly-designed exteriors guarantee consistent bookings, even at non-peak seasons. Owners of these establishments know very well that the demands of their guests come not only at daytime but also at night.
New Jersey is home to the famous Jersey Shore, a place that many tourists flock to all throughout the year. Fox News reports how tourism through the Jersey Shore contributed to the GDP of the state:
Tourism accounted for $40.4 billion in economic activity last year, topping the previous record of nearly $40 billion set in 2012.
— Generated $35.9 billion of New Jersey’s gross domestic product in 2013, or 7 percent of the entire state economy. If New Jersey tourism were a company, its sales would rank No. 70 on the Fortune 500 list — bigger than Sears, DuPont and Hess.
— Directly or indirectly supports 511,000 jobs in New Jersey, about 1 out of every 10 jobs in the state.
— Generated $4.6 billion in state and local taxes, and $5.2 billion in federal taxes last year.
