As a result of 10 major new hotels opening in Shreveport and Bossier since January 2007, the total number of hotel rooms has increased from 8,400 to about 10,000. The rapid rise in the number of Shreveport hotel rooms is directly related to the increasing demand from tourists who are coming to Shreveport for an increasing number of good reasons such as Shreveport’s stimulating cultural exhibits and attractions, the exciting nightlife to be enjoyed at the casinos, and the numerous styles of ethnic cuisines to be sampled in a dazzling array of fine restaurants. Shreveport’s Riverfront District, the 5-mile long Line Avenue shopping district with its many antique stores, boutiques and specialty shops, and Bossier City’s Louisiana Boardwalk area also offer residents and tourists the fun of shopping combined with the pleasures of eating and the thrills of entertainment.
