San Diego's convention center expansion has helped to revitalize the area. Interest from Hyatt, Westin and Le Meridien will result in 3,600 additional rooms. The already-completed new $42-million San Diego Gaslamp Hilton is the first new hotel in the GasLamp quarter in a century. San Diego's efforts represent a trend -- roughly one quarter of North America's convention facilities are in the process of expanding. Anaheim is doubling its meeting and exhibit space; the Los Angeles Convention Center expansion has faced problems from a lack of nearby hotel rooms.
