Since the part memorial day weekend, the hotel accommodations throughout the United States started varying in terms of occupancy levels.
Properties located in the destination areas like beaches, amusement parks and mountain resorts reported occupancy hike while other hoteliers had 20 to 30 percent boost.
Hospitality associations few days before the weekend began predicted to see dismal hotel business performances, for which hoteliers may seek Congress for the approval of additional funding to get rescued and buoyed.
But, it’s now the U.S. hotel industry seems to show itself and comeback has begun so all states may reopen their economies. In accordance with STR, the occupancy numbers are slowly and steadily increasing, while hotels are getting back to business fully-fledged. But, yet the businesses will surely be not as usual.
