  Center City has 10,700 hotel rooms, up from 6,700 in 1995. There are now 3 more hotels with 521 rooms under construction, and another 5 hotels with 843 rooms "proposed and approved," David Schaaf of the commission staff told commissioners at their Wednesday meeting.
  "There should be demand for more than 1,100" additional rooms once the Pennsylvania Convention Center doubling is completed, he added.
  Philadelphia draws small and midsized boutique hotels, not resort-style giants.
  Hotels now under construction include the Four Points, 1201 Race, 92 rooms; Hotel Palomar, 117 S. 17th, 235 rooms; Le Meridien, in the old YMCA, 202 rooms; there's also the approved-but-not-yet-build 274-room W Hotel at 1200 Arch, and more speculative locations in Franklintown, near the Convention Center, in Old City, and just across the Schuylkill at Cira Center II.
