In this podcast, we talk about how the hotel industry is in crisis. The current situation for hotels in the U.S. is that national occupancy is 48.9% down which is 34.5% YOY, with an average hotel rate $100.04 down 25.3%.
Currently, there are 15,000 hotel developments in development worldwide at the end of 2019. We also discuss how hotels will need to innovate and become grocery stores and think about other revenue streams.
