Hotel developers are flocking to Palm Beach County.

Seven hotels totaling more than 1,100 rooms are under construction in the county and projected to be completed by early 2016, according to the county. Another 1,200 rooms are in the pipeline, pending county approval. That represents the most new hotel construction Palm Beach has experienced in at least 14 years.

Palm Beach County had 164 existing hotels in 2013, according to the Sun-Sentinel. It had 201 in 2000.
