A new survey of hotel guests by The Associated Press and Bloomberg shows that even as the holiday season has arrived, ratings for the country’s popular resorts have not.
In February, the AP surveyed 1,500 guests at nearly 500 resorts across six states: Arizona, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Utah.
The pollsters said their research showed that hotel occupancy remained high across the country, but that ratings for hotels and resorts were dropping.
While most people will be away from their families for the holiday period, that doesn’t mean people aren’t still staying at the resorts.
About one in three people in those states have already booked for next year, according to the AP.
The AP reported that people are staying at resorts that may be open until late March, April or May.
This time next year is likely to be a very busy time for those hotels, too.
While the New Years Eve party and the coronavirus pandemic have given people a break, many people have been forced to return to work, work that requires many days away from home.
In addition to work at home, some people are also staying home to care for ailing relatives or to care off the debt they owe.
This isn’t the first time that the holidays have been disrupted.
Last year, the holiday weekend caused widespread closures of hotels and restaurants in the country.
The AP reported earlier this month that many people are going back to work.
