Coming Saturday: Visitors Bureau hotel tax attractive to city

TRAVERSE CITY — The Traverse City Convention and Visitors Bureau — recently redubbed Traverse City Tourism — is a trade association with relatively deep pockets, thanks to a levy on local hoteliers.

Hotel owners in Grand Traverse County and parts of Antrim County more than doubled the private agency's revenues in 2011 and beyond. Those business operators voted to increase the levy they pay the Visitors Bureau from 2 percent of room charges to 5 percent.
