GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Local tourism leaders say Grand Rapids hotels set a record last year for room bookings.

Experience Grand Rapids says a record high of 137,490 hotel rooms were booked in 2013.

The organization also reports hotel revenue also hit a high of $139 million last year.

Experience Grand Rapids says it's the result of the group's promotion of the city -- including its first national TV commercial campaign -- and reaching out to beer fans and art lovers through the internet and social media.

The group expects events like conventions and ArtPrize to bring more tourists to Grand Rapids this year.
