The transition from the summer to fall travel seasons has been different than in past years, according to some U.S. hoteliers, who are adjusting strategies for selling hotel rooms to meet the new demand.

Theresa Hajko, regional director of revenue management at third-party management company Spire Hospitality, said demand across the Spire’s hotels dipped in the last two weeks of August and first week of September. Hajko said this drop felt bigger than in previous years, possibly due to a greater volume of students going back to school in-person.
