Lodging Sector Update
Labor Day Weekend, Hurricane Laura, and CA Wildfire Impacts
Boosted in part by Labor Day weekend, U.S. hotel demand grew to 18 million room nights sold (+500,000 week over week). Saturday (September 5) occupancy came in at 69%, just 2.6% less than the comparable Saturday in 2019, and leisure markets that have showed the highest summer occupancy levels reported strong increases from the previous week.
At the same time, the markets with the highest occupancy for the week were not leisure destinations. Rather, the high occupancy markets were those housing displaced residents from Hurricane Laura and the California wildfires.
