  (3)  In the case of a hotel or motel, such business is located within an enterprise zone which is located within any county of the first classification with a population of at least five hundred thousand but less than seven hundred thousand inhabitants according to the last decennial census, or in an enterprise zone which is located within any city of the third classification which is partially located within a county of the first class with a population of one hundred fifty thousand or more which is adjacent to a county of the first classification with a population of at least five hundred thousand but less than seven hundred thousand according to the last decennial census; and
