By Jay Wittner July 27, 2020

Hotel profitability, badly damaged by the Coronavirus, has been improving over the past few months.  In April profits were down 117% from the previous year, in May down 110%, and in June down 105% (per hospitality research firm STR). The markets that are performing best are Florida’s Tampa/St. Pete and California’s Anaheim/Santa Ana.  These markets provided both the best total revenue per room (TRevPar) and the highest gross operating profit per room (GPPPAR).
