Are Pensacola Hotels Safe?

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

There have been special concerns over hotel chains located in Pensacol and the surrounding areas. Will the oil spills affect tourism? Will hotels find their once-packed schedules filled with empty spaces?

The good news is that hotels in the Pensacola area have actually seen an increase in business overthe past month, with a 15.5% increase in June alone.

The problem? Researchers state these numbers are not up due to tourism. Instead, they have risen because of the number of people visiting the gulf to help with the oil spill cleanup.

Whether or not tourism will be affected is something only time can tell.
