Staff at the nearby Fairfield Inn ..., 2 Dec 2015 [cached]
Staff at the nearby Fairfield Inn and Holiday Inn declined to comment on their business, but Trumbull County Tourism Bureau Executive Director Stephanie Sferra said the new hotels are just replacing the hotels that the area has lost throughout the years, like the Ramada Inn and the Metroplex on Belmont Avenue. That led to a loss of about 400 rooms, she said.
"With the new hotels coming in, that's only going to replace them. So there really isn't a boom in the area when you look at the Trumbull County hotels compared to the Mahoning County," she said.

Stephanie Sferra, director of the TC Tourism Bureau, said Trumbull County will stay busy from now through Labor Day weekend.
''It will be non-stop with events every weekend and almost every day this summer. That's why we have the website because people can come here and find something to see or do every day,'' Sferra said.
She said a big attraction will be the return for the fifth year of the Ohio Chautauqua, which always draws big crowds.
Sferra said the air show really helped kick off the attraction and events season.
''We have many people wanting to find something to do and travel this summer after the very rough winter we had,'' she said.
Sferra said the bed tax for visitors to the area is expected to be up this summer.
She said what makes coming to Trumbull County nice for people is there is such a variety from shows at the amphitheater, festivals, park concerts and holiday celebrations.
''There is so much for families to enjoy,'' she said.

Tourism Bureau Executive Director Stephanie Sferra said the bureau would like more information before making a decision on the grant request.
Three grant requests were approved Thursday, including:
Sferra, reached after the meeting Thursday, said she did not have exact grant amounts available on the other two requests but that each was less than the Philharmonic Association's grant.
Sferra said three organizations received grant approval last month, including the Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County for the Ohio Chautauqua festival June 28, Women in the Outdoors for a June event, and the Trumbull County Federation of Sportsmens' Clubs for an event in May.

Stephanie Sferra, director of the Trumbull County Visitor's Bureau, understands well the boon that development like VAM USA will bring to the Mahoning Valley.
"When you are talking about a lot of these oil and gas companies, their engineers and executives come from out of the area - Texas, Oklahoma. When they come in, they are coming in for business," Sferra said, noting that they have a need for a hotel where they can stay and conduct business. "I have to agree with the Residence Inn. They are going to have people coming and going all the time."
Sferra, whose budget is comprised primarily from the tax imposed on hotel lodging in Trumbull County, is hopeful - and optimistic - the growth with continue.
"These companies would not be making an investment if they didn't know that something was here," Sferra said.

While the first place prize is $1,500 based on 75 teams, the economic impact for the community could be four times as much, according to Stephanie Sferra, executive director of the Trumbull County Bureau of Tourism.
The bureau hosted a walleye tournament in April that Sferra said has a comparable economic impact to the upcoming ice fishing tournament.
At the last walleye tournament, about 70 teams of two competed and many completed a survey about their experience in the county, she said. Many of the teams came from out of town, stayed at hotels and ate out at restaurants. This generated more than $3,000 in direct sales and about $6,000 in induced sales, according to Sferra.
"Not everyone will stay in hotels," Sferra said. "But they'll eat."
When visitors eat out at restaurants, the benefits compound to the local grocery stores that the restaurants purchase from, she said. One example she often gives is that if a fisher pricks his finger with a hook, he will go to a drugstore to buy a bandage, and even that is an economic impact.
