Is there hotel tax on meeting or banquet rooms?

Yes, there is state hotel tax on meeting and banquet rooms. The 6 percent state hotel tax applies to any room or space in a hotel, including meeting and banquet rooms.

Local hotel taxes, however, are due only on those rooms ordinarily used for sleeping. There are no state or local hotel taxes on meeting and banquet rooms located in a building where no sleeping accommodations are provided.
