Chemung County, N.Y., is enjoying a boom in interest from hoteliers, having lined up five hotel development projects and a possible sixth seeking approval. Three of the properties belong to Vision Hotels, which has detailed plans for a four-story Fairfield Inn and two 80- to 100-room properties in Horseheads. County officials are pointing out the area's strong tourism and natural-gas industries as the cause of the investor interest.
