The city said that numbers of Brazilian and Chinese visitors have nearly quintupled since 2006.

The tourism numbers are based on a model that includes surveys, hotel data, airport traffic and other information and includes business travelers and vacationers.

According to the report, Bloomberg said that hotels, for instance, hit a new high of 29 million bookings for some 91,500 rooms citywide this year, up nearly 7 percent from 2011.
