Whenever a local tv station talks about the room surcharge used to promote san diego
they show old del mar racetrack tv ads. Are Del Mar Racetrack's tv ads paid for
by the room surcharge detailed below?
"At stake is an estimated $30 million a year in revenue used to not only promote the city as a tourist and meetings destination, but also staff the San Diego Tourism Authority, formerly known as the Convention and Visitors Bureau. The money is generated via a 2 percent surcharge on hotel room bills and has been collected by the city since Jan. 1."
