The words “rebirth,” “re-energize” and “revival” are commonly spoken when referring to Lower Manhattan. But, 10 years after the horror experienced on September 11, 2001, the words have taken on more than just a somber and emotional element.

Since 2001, hotel and retail services increased 10%, and tourists and business travelers now have the choice of 18 hotels – triple the number that existed in 2001 — with seven more new hotels slated for opening in the coming year, according to the Alliance for Downtown New York. Tourism has increased by nearly 30% in just the past two years, but as the 10th anniversary of 9/11 nears, the hospitality industry hasn’t lost sight of its focus.
