Report: Aspen tops state resorts for October occupancy
Aspen lodges were just over half full for the offseason month of October, a new report shows.
Fifty-one percent of Aspen’s rooms were occupied last month, according to the latest Rocky Mountain Lodging Report, which was issued Tuesday. That was tops among the other Colorado resorts surveyed — Vail (30 percent), Telluride (36.7 percent), Steamboat Springs (41.9 percent), Winter Park (31.8 percent) and Breckendridge (30.7 percent).
Glenwood Springs, which does not fall under the report’s “resort” category, filled 61.1 percent of its rooms, the survey says.
From January through October, Aspen’s hotels and lodges had a 66.2 percent occupancy rate. That’s also at the top of the list among the state resorts in the survey.
Aspen led all of the state markets for its average room rate in October — $191.60 a night. From January through October, Aspen room rates have averaged $396.72, nearly three times the state average of $145.23.
