COVID-19 has directly affected the hotel industry throughout the United States, and Washington County is no exception. This time of year traditionally is a “soft” period for area hotels. However, we are still seeing decreases directly tied to the decrease in business and leisure travel due to COVID-19 and related travel restrictions and recommendations.
For January 24-30, 2021, Washington County’s hotel occupancy averaged 45.2, a 23.0% decrease from the same period in 2020. The average daily room rate (ADR) during the same period was $85.84, an 23.5% decrease from the same period last year.
The following graphs illustrate the weekly occupancy and ADR trends from November 14, 2020 through January 30, 2021.
