Major Markets Lag in Recovery
new AHLA report, shared exclusively with USA Today, shows that the road to recovery is long with 21 of the top 25 U.S. hotel markets remaining in a depression or recession, despite an uptick in leisure travel. The new data shows urban hotels are still in a “depression” cycle while the overall U.S. hotel industry remains in a “recession.” 

Urban markets, which rely heavily on business from events and group meetings, continue to face a severe financial crisis as they have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. Urban hotels were down 52% in room revenue in May compared to May 2019. For example,  New York City, which remains in a depression, has seen one-third of its hotel rooms (42,030 rooms) wiped out by the COVID-19 pandemic, with nearly 200 hotels closing in the city. 
The report underscores the need for targeted relief from Congress for the ailing industry.
