The City Council formed a Hotel/Motel BID on August 19, 2002, including all hotels and motels in Huntington Beach for the purpose of funding activities to promote Huntington Beach as an overnight destination. On September 15, 2014, the City Council approved a new BID, now known as the Huntington Beach Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID) and disbanded the prior Hotel/Motel BID.
The TBID is designed to provide specific benefits directly to lodging businesses by increasing room night sales. The TBID funds marketing, sales promotions, and destination product development to increase overnight tourism. The District programs will market Huntington Beach as a tourist, meeting and event destination, thereby increasing overnight room sales. The annual assessment rate is 3% of gross short term room revenue (stays of less than 31 days) These funds are collected as a separate itemization with the monthly Transient Occupancy Taxes (TOT) paid to the City of Huntington Beach. The Visit Huntington Beach Board of Directors also serves as the TBID Owners' Association.
