Hotels and other lodging types were particularly affected by COVID-19 and suffered their own set of unique challenges. Of particular interest, we saw a pandemic-driven rise in the popularity of short-term rentals. Will this rising popularity be sustained in the months and years ahead? When and how will the traditional hotel sector return to the record high levels of performance enjoyed before the virus outbreak? And will the operational and marketing changes implemented by this sector to weather the storm remain viable and necessary in the months and years ahead? Learn what the experts expect in 2022 and beyond.
What percentage of your visitors are staying with friends and relatives (outside of hotel and vacation rentals)?
Arrivalist will share insights from its lodging and economic’s dashboard to reveal the other half of overnight stays — and how that can differ widely by origin market.
