Hotel Occupancy in Miami is Bucking the Trend!!
According to Travel Weekly, while most hotels are struggling through the pandemic, bookings in Miami are good.
Wendy Kallergis, president and CEO for the Greater Miami and the Beaches Hotel Association is reporting that "We're finding that people are driving here, not just from elsewhere in Florida or the southeast, but believe it or not from as far as the Midwest and California, because they're doing longer stays".
"They're setting up shop here and working in their hotel rooms or suites."
Kallergis said that "It's predominantly the beach hotels that are doing really well, but I do think some of the downtown hotels are doing pretty well, too."
Mauro Pinho, director of sales and marketing for the Acqualina Resort & Residences told TW that "over the last few months, especially over weekends and holidays, the spike in demand was so significant we were unable to accommodate all the requests we received."
