ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — York County hotels have rooms available for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., next month.
The Herald of Rock Hill reports convention organizers have reduced their requests for rooms by 7 percent.
Sixteen hotels in York County had committed to hold 11,000 rooms for the convention. It's not clear exactly how many rooms are now available, but hotel operators hope to have a count on available rooms by the end of this week.
Rock Hill will be hosting media members and security staff. No state delegations are staying in the county.
The hotel operators are still hoping to fill the rooms for the convention, which runs Sept. 3-6.
York County has 24,000 hotel rooms. Some hotels held a few rooms for frequent or corporate customers for the convention.
