News for the Hospitality Executive
Tuscaloosa, Ala. – September 07, 2012 - In partnership with the Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports Commission, TAHA is excited to be able to offer its members a comprehensive market analysis of the Tuscaloosa Hotel Market. Not only will we review the last twelve months of Market Data for Tuscaloosa, but we will also compare and contrast our destination compared to a select ACC/SEC Market which is almost identical to Tuscaloosa in terms of # of Hotel Rooms, # of Hotels by STR category and similar ADR & OCC trends. This presentation and subsequent market report which normally cost you well over $1,000 will be provided absolutely free to TAHA members.
As less than 50% of the 39 properties in the Tuscaloosa market are active TAHA members, at TAHA we have asked ourselves:
Tuscaloosa Area Hospitality Association – “ TAHA”
