Reno-Sparks Visitor Revenue Is Up

May 13, 2018

Taxable room revenues are up this spring in the Reno-Sparks area. Our contributor Kaleb Roedel of the Northern Nevada Business Weekly has the story.

Taxable room revenues grew by nearly 7 percent in March compared to the same month last year. That's according to a report from the Reno Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority.

The increase came despite the fact that total occupied rooms actually decreased by more than 2 percent. That's because average room rates per night increased nearly $6 this year to about 96 bucks.

Total taxable room revenues for the month were $29.8 million.

The survey counts rooms for several forms of temporary lodging, including hotels, motels, RV parks, and timeshares, along with vacation and homeowner rentals.
