CA - Promising sign for coast hotels
Booking activity ramping up in Half Moon Bay as people start looking at future options
Half Moon Bay hotels reported a significant increase in online and phone activity in May, fueling hopes for a quick recovery for the local industry.
“People are itching to travel. They’re ready,” said Krystlyn Giedt, CEO of the Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce & Visitors’ Bureau. Giedt noted occupancy for hotels on the coastside of San Mateo County at this time of year is historically 65%. “If online and phone call indicators hold true we might bounce back to that pretty quickly so that’s exciting.”
During a City Council meeting last week, the general manager for the Beach House Hotel in Half Moon Bay said promising indicators began at the start of May.
