The city of Santa Clara’s hotel occupancy continues to rise as 2012 winds down. In October, the hotels surrounding the Santa Clara Convention Center, California’s Great America, and future Santa Clara Stadium averaged 83% occupancy, four percent higher than previous year (79%).
Average Daily Rate (ADR) was also strong in October, 2012 at $158.00 which is $19.00 higher than October, 2011. Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce and Convention-Visitors Bureau President and CEO Steve Van Dorn says “The occupancy tax generated from increased occupancy and average rate contributes greatly to Santa Clara’s general fund. We’re cautiously optimistic that this positive trend will continue.”
The averages compiled by the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce and Convention-Visitors Bureau include the Avatar Hotel, Biltmore Hotel & Suites, Embassy Suites, Hilton Santa Clara, Hyatt house, Hyatt Regency Santa Clara, Marriott Santa Clara, and the Plaza Suites.
