Ten hotels have opened in Queens since 2006, and there are five more on the way through 2016, the TimesLedger reported.

“There’s a huge hotel boom in Long Island City, Flushing and around the two airports, and they go after completely different markets,” Rob McKay of the Queens Economic Development Corp. told the newspaper.

In Jamaica, the site of a hotel at 138-10 135th Street that has been closed for five years is being renovated into a 330-room Crowne Plaza to be ready later this year. Also, a 150-room, Marshall Hotels and Resorts-managed Four Points by Sheraton is expected to open in Jamaica early next year, the newspaper said.

Two hotels will be cropping up near Belmont Park, as part of a stadium plan for the New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League.

Some recent arrivals to the borough include the 173-room Springhill Suites in Corona near LaGuardia Airport, the 128-room Wyndham Garden in Long Island City and the 114-room Hotel De Point in Flushing. Long Island City has 17 hotels, largely a mix of chains and boutique hotels such as the 100-room Z NYC Hotel, the report said. [TimesLedger]Mark Maurer
