Recovery Fades for the Hotel

In fact, hotel room revenue already were down 5% in August–before the attacks–as businesses and consumers cut back on travel spending amid the economic slowdown. Kent said room revenue would have been down 7% to 10% for the rest of the year without the travel crisis, but now that number probably will be closer to 15% for the rest of the year. “It’s hard to see it will get much better than this,” Kent said. “You’re facing tough comparisons through the first quarter” of 2002. The slowing improvement was partly behind Deutsche Banc Alex. Brown’s decision Monday to lower its outlook for five hotel companies: Hilton Hotels Corp., Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., Wyndham International Inc., Prime Hospitality Corp. and MeriStar Hotels & Resorts Inc. “Recent data from Smith Travel suggest that the industry’s initial rebound has begun to moderate,” analyst Mark Mutkoski wrote in a research note. He said he expects continued contraction in room revenue through the second quarter of next year, with sequential improvement after that until comparisons turn positive in the third quarter.

A day room (hotel) is a method of booking a hotel room for same-day use. Historically, the use of day rooms dates as far back as the hotel itself. In literary history, has been associated with the idea of renting rooms on an hourly basis. For a time, this practice had a negative connotation for hotels and motels. In Japan, this practice is commonplace, but exclusive to a specific type of hotel called a love hotel. Long layovers and unpredictable travel plans re-created the demand for day rooms in modern times. In the United States, jobs that require travel became more popular in the 20th and 21st centuries. The practice of renting a hotel room for a day is also common among travelers and vacationers who go on cruises, due to the fact that cruise ships typically depart and arrive at early hours of the morning. Modern hotels fill daytime occupancy by offering day rooms. Day rooms are booked in a block of hours typically between 8 am and 5 pm, before the typical night shift. For example, the Four Points, a Sheraton hotel in Los Angeles, began offering day rooms. Also, the Rodeway Inn and Suites near Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida offers day rooms.
