DL lodging tax brings in visitors
Most travelers may not notice having to pay a couple extra dollars when they stay at hotels or resorts — another line item at the end of the bill.
But those few dollars really add up for the local tourism bureau that is working to bring those tourists to town.
Like many cities, Detroit Lakes has a lodging tax. The 3 percent raised from all lodging facilities in town brings in about $200,000 a year for the tourism bureau to use on advertising Detroit Lakes to out-of-towners.
