“Demand for hotels and travel in general clearly bottomed in mid-April. Throughout the rest of the quarter, hotel industry demand gradually and consistently improved each month as states and cities reopened and began to ease restrictive mandates. While the recent uptick in COVID cases and the resulting pullback of city reopenings have caused demand growth to flatten out, we’re still seeing an uptick in the leisure segment, benefitting our drive-to resorts, which have been experiencing a healthy recovery in operating performance that has generally improved each week. Encouragingly, our resorts have been generating average rates above the prior-year period, and hotel demand in our urban markets has been gradually recovering as well. As a result, we have reopened an additional 10 urban hotels and expect to reopen another 5 in the next several weeks. All of this positive progress, albeit slow and gradual, has enabled us to materially reduce our monthly cash burn and improve our liquidity during this unprecedented period. We’re also excited to announce the successful completion of the transformational redevelopments of Hotel Zena Washington DC, Le Parc West Hollywood, San Diego Mission Bay Resort, Viceroy Hotel Washington DC, Chaminade Resort in Santa Cruz, and Viceroy Santa Monica Hotel. These comprehensive redevelopments will allow these properties to achieve much better performance as they ramp up over the next few years.”
