Hotels Moving Toward Recovery

The hotel industry will continue its path to recovery this year, but it won’t be without some speed bumps, and full recovery is still several years in the future. Those are the conclusions of the 2022 State of the Hotel Industry Report by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA).

Here are some of the top findings of the report, which was conducted with analysis by Oxford Economics.

» Hotel room revenues are projected to approach 2019 levels this year, reaching $168 billion.

 

Sports tourism was a big win for West Michigan last year. West Michigan Sports Commission (WMSC) generated over $55 million for the region in direct visitor spending through 100 sporting events. That’s more than a 300 percent increase from 2020 and a slight increase over 2019 revenue. According to tracking by WMSC, these 100 sporting events attracted 184,350 athletes and visitors and filled nearly 43,000 hotel room nights.
