Hotel revenue in Huntsville and Decatur take major hit amid COVID-19 pandemic


HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A majority of hotels in Huntsville and Decatur are contending with a major drop in revenue this year compared to 2019.

“The decline was quite profound in March and April. I think we’re down around 20 percent for the year for lodging tax,” said Charles Winters of The Huntsville/Madison County
Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Revenue from Huntsville’s lodging tax is used to help fund The Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau, The Von Braun Center, and The Huntsville Sports Commission, among other publicly supported entities.

According to The Decatur Daily, the lodging tax that supports Decatur-Morgan County Tourism is also down this year by 16 percent.
