With the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak restricting travel across the region and country, Boulder Valley and Northern Colorado hotels struggled to maintain a fraction of the occupancy they enjoyed before the virus all but shut down the hospitality industry in March.

Greeley hotels were the fullest in April, with an average occupancy rate of 31.9%, according to the monthly Rocky Mountain Lodging Report as released Tuesday by the Colorado Hotel and Lodging Association. That’s compared to a rate of 68.6% in February.

The average daily rate for Greeley hotel rooms dropped from $100.42 to $80.67 during that period.

On the other end of the occupancy spectrum was Estes Park, which posted a paltry 7% rate, down from 24.3% in February.

Hotels in the mountain community cost an average of $132.17 in April.

Boulder posted an occupancy rate of 12.5% and daily average cost of $94.84.

Fort Collins hotels were a bit more full at 14.8%, but prices averaged $76.56 per night.

Along the U.S. Highway 36 corridor, the occupancy rate in April was 21.5% and the cost was $80.25.

In Longmont, hotels posted occupancy rates of 14.4% and daily rates of $82.45.

Loveland hotels were 19.7% full and cost on average $89.13 per night.

Year-to-date figures in 2020 are clearly impacted by the virus. Statewide, the 2020 year-to-date occupancy and rental rates were 47.0% and $160.06 respectively. In 2019, those figures were 64.6% and $162.91.
