How to Save Your Hotels With Your Dogs
As the economy continues to recover, the cost of staying in a hotel is dropping, according to a recent survey of the industry.
The hotel industry’s share of the overall industry’s annual sales is down 1.3 percent, according the Conference Board.
But that’s not the only thing that’s been on the decline.
According to the hotel industry association, the average occupancy rate for new hotel rooms dropped by 3.6 percent in the last three years.
The number of people staying in the industry’s hotels also fell, according a new report by the National Association of Realtors.
That means there are fewer rooms available, and fewer rooms for people to rent out to guests.
The association said that as a result, the industry has been on a gradual decline.
It expects that occupancy rates for hotel rooms in 2017 and 2018 will be at historic lows, and the industry will experience an 8.9 percent decline in 2017.
The National Association’s 2017 Hotel Industry Conference Report shows that occupancy rate declined from a record of 10.4 percent in 2015 to just 9.5 percent in 2017, a drop of more than 50 percent.
That’s a dramatic drop in occupancy rates.
For hotel room prices to stay competitive, hotel owners have to maintain a high occupancy rate, the association says.
So the real question is, how do we save our hotels?
According to a survey by the hotel and tourism industry association conducted in early February, only 13 percent of hotel guests said they were willing to pay more than what their hotel is offering, with the average price at $199.
In other words, the overwhelming majority of people in the business are still willing to take a higher rate for their hotel.
So it’s worth asking whether a new rule to require more people to pay for their rooms could be beneficial.
The industry has already faced a shortage of room nights, so hotel owners would have to decide if they can keep adding more rooms or simply keep bringing in more guests.
But some of those rooms are already booked.
That could change.
Some hotels already have a minimum occupancy requirement, which is a requirement that hotel rooms must be at least two rooms.
That is different from the minimum requirement for new rooms that is required to keep a hotel profitable, because new rooms aren’t used for regular stays.
According the National Hotel Association, only 19 percent of all hotel rooms are in “unoccupied” condition, meaning they’re vacant for guests.
And those that are vacant, only about 4 percent are used, according Hilton Hotels.
If the number of hotels is to grow, it’s essential that they also provide guests with a good experience.
And if the number is to stay steady, the number that are in unoccupied condition must also keep pace with the growth in guests.
That would be easier to do with a hotel rule, said Brian Miller, president of the American Hotel and Lodging Association.
Miller says a rule requiring people to share rooms could encourage hoteliers to bring more people in.
It also could help the industry keep pace by increasing the number and quality of rooms available.
“If they do that, it opens up more rooms,” Miller said.
“It creates a virtuous cycle, and you can make a difference.”
What about the pets?
As with all businesses, the question of who is a good guest and who is not will come down to who can afford to pay the highest price for a room.
According a new survey from the Hotel Industry Association, 72 percent of those surveyed said they would rather pay more for a hotel room than for a pet, with just 12 percent of them saying they would not pay more.
And the number who said they wouldn’t pay more also fell from 37 percent in 2016 to 25 percent in 2018.
According that survey, more than half of hotel owners surveyed said it was more important to keep pet-friendly than pet-free.
And more than two-thirds of hotelers said they believed pets are a health hazard, compared to just a quarter who said it wasn’t.
If a pet- and guest-friendly rule is required, it could help reduce the number on the streets, Miller said, by making sure that people who can’t afford to share a room for a dog or cat don’t have to.
But there is still the question: How do we do it?
As much as some people would like to see hotel occupancy rates stay steady in the future, there is a huge demand for more rooms for guests, said Miller.
“People are trying to figure out what their preferred hotel stays are,” Miller added.
“Some people like to stay in the same rooms they’re in now, and they’re looking for a place to stay that’s dog friendly.”
If we can keep the hotel occupancy rate steady and keep prices down, Miller believes there will be room for the industry to grow.
He thinks a rule that requires a minimum room occupancy for new guests could help.
