The Hotel Industry Is Suffering In The Pandemic Crisis


The Presidential election is on Tuesday, November 3rd, but early voting in Texas with long lines and hour-long wait times for thousands of voters at some location has begun. U.S. election projections show several states have already exceeded 20% of their total votes cast at this point in 2016 including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Virginia and Vermont. In Georgia, people stood in voting lines as long as 9 hours to cast their votes. 


With only three weeks until Election Day, many states are already seeing historical levels of early voting as people cast their votes through the mail in the middle of pandemic. 


In this pandemic crisis, the hotel industry got hit the hardest, according to Best Western CEO David King who said, “Almost 38,000 of the nation’s 57,000 hotels will close within six months without further government assistance."


America’s hotels are on life support as the coronavirus pandemic drags on with hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue and some two million related jobs in jeopardy. In 2020, the hotel business in general has shrunk down 65% when compared with 2019. 


The bottom line is: It will be a long time before people feel comfortable checking into hotels again. And even longer before international tourists start filling up rooms again around the world.


We are urging the Congress to take immediate action to get the Stimulus Bill passed soon and come to the rescue of our economy.
