Building hotels.

That's it. How do I build hotels so tourists will stay and love me.


On a side note, I almost feel bad for Maxis. Like, if you spent years and all you thought about was creating something so other people can enjoy, and then when you finally give it to them the entire community hates you for something that is out your control. Like, they created an amazing game, they really did. And everyone hates them because they couldn't play it for ALMOST a week it came out. Now, I heard that yeah, the online requirement is so it keeps piracy away, but isn't it also so that every single npc has thoughts and destinations and what not? It's pretty sweet and makes the game awesome.

Anyways, I don't really know the whole ordeal. This is coming from a guy who remembered today that he had 2 gift cards to best buy for 60 bucks and decided to get SimCity and it worked on his 2nd try.

But yeah, how do you build hotels.

Casinos let you build hotels as extensions. Commercial zones also can form hotels but it's random.

Its not maxis fault. its EA. and EA doesn't care about making people happy. EA cares about squeezing people for every penny they have, whatever the cost. Its capitalism at its finest.

Just want to chime in with this whole Maxis stuff. They are partly to blame for this fiasco as they defended and wanted the "Always-online" DRM.

Thusly, I will imitate your every move!

Maxis is a brand owned by EA, tacked onto one of their own development studios and stamped onto games. You can't praise/criticize one and not the other.

As for hotels, they appear to suck. Not enough tourists stay in them, they don't make enough profit when they do, and their upkeep cost is brutal when they are empty. This really kills the better casinos because they appear to depend on maxing out hotel upgrades and keeping them filled to make a profit, which never happens for me, so they just eat your money. I had an airport with 3 strips bringing in hundreds of tourists per day, and a port with the cruise ship upgrade bringing in hundreds more, and I still couldn't get a sleek casino to break even, let alone make any profit.

I'll run into that problem later I suppose. I only built the most basic casino so far.
