Is there something I'm misunderstanding here, or something lost in translation, or does all of Lima have a fraction of the rooms of one Vegas hotel?

Bluebull, you might have some people that need to stay at your place.
be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

Typical of local government spokespersons - They're prone to having brain explosions.

Lima is city of 11 million people. Need I say more?

Apart from the Mariott, Westin, Lima Country Club, Andina, Doubletree, Swisshotel (among others) which together must have over 3,000 luxury rooms, there must be close to 1,000 hotels and hostels in this city.
