Economic Action Steps — Hotels & Lodging

Hotel & Lodging can include hotels, bed and breakfasts, hostels, short term rentals such as AirBnb and VRBO, campsites, and RV parks. A precipitous decline in business travel and tourism has led to an uncertain outlook for a large segment of the lodging industry, forcing operators to offer rooms at unsustainably low rates. Further, only a small fraction of hotel employees have the option to work from home, putting pressure on owners and operators to seek alternative revenue sources compliant with safety guidelines.
