“Hotels will gradually start to reopen, but they will have to brace themselves for ‘the next normal’ … and the one after that … and the one after that,” Paraschiv said. “We will likely see several iterations of normalcy in the months and years to come. Recovery will be slow, and properties will have to work hard to get ahead of the competition and capture the limited increase in occupancy.
