Compiled by Chris Woodyard, Times staff writer

Ask the folks at Westin South Coast Plaza. The Costa Mesa hotel across the street from the South Coast Plaza shopping center reports that occupancy is up 15%--all because of the pedestrian bridge that now connects the Town Center office complex with the retail complex.

The reason: More guests are staying overnight in order to shop, says hotel General Manager Wayne Bodington.
