In the past two months, the number of hotel rooms booked has doubled for Cocoa beaches in Southern California, as the summer heat continues to wreak havoc on hotels and restaurants.
Hotel owners say the spike in business comes from a host of factors.
Some are still trying to figure out how to handle the surge in visitors who arrive for the weekend, while others are working on new and improved security measures to prevent any new attacks.
The beach is still hot and muggy this year, but some hotels are feeling more secure than they have in years, said Brian Zuker, the hotel’s general manager.
He’s seen some new security measures that help with the increase in guests and said hotels are taking advantage of them to offer more rooms.
Hotel transalvania is an Italian-themed beach resort that opened in 2005 and has long been popular among vacationers, many of whom choose to stay at hotels in neighboring Orange County.
It was once a popular spot for the Palm Springs Zoo, but the animals moved to other locations.
The resort reopened in January after being closed for several years because of the deadly heat wave.
It now offers a number of amenities including a bar, spa, bar and restaurant, as well as an entertainment area, water park, indoor volleyball courts, fitness center and bike rental service.
For now, the resort has no plans to close any of its hotels, Zukersaid.
But he’s hopeful things will improve, especially after a recent uptick in hotel occupancy.
I’m confident that in the future we’ll see more hotels open at a lower occupancy rate, he said.
He’s hopeful that the increased hotel occupancy will allow the resort to open more rooms to help offset some of the losses from the heat wave, and to increase the resort’s profitability.
In an interview, Zink said the resort is working on additional security measures.
Zuk said hotel guests are now able to lock their rooms when they’re not in use.
Guests who have room-lock locks installed can then be released into the resort.
Zink also said hotel security is improving and that the resort will offer new and better security measures this summer.
For hotels like Cocoa, Zisker said the increased occupancy is a good thing, as it means they can more easily attract and retain guests.
We’re going to try to find the right combination of solutions, he added.
He added that he doesn’t expect to see any major changes to the hotel and dining offerings for the rest of the summer, as hotel occupancy increases.
The hotel is currently running a limited number of rooms, Zinking said, and he expects more to be added in the coming weeks.
He said the hotel is also running an online reservation system for guests who are interested in a reservation.
