If you didn't think the Government Shutdown affected hotels, think again.
The country's national parks are closing during the shutdown. People already inside the parks have two days to clear out. That includes the people who are staying at the Ahwahenee Hotel in Yosemite or the Lake Yellowstone Hotel (pictured above) and all other national park hotels (here's a full list here.) This could also affect business at hotels that are open near National Parks as the visitor numbers come to a screeching halt.
The Government Shutdown will also affect air travel which in turn always has a direct impact on hotels. Flight cancellations may happen, leaving folks in need of a hotel stay or unable to make their hotel reservation.
So far, we haven't seen much on the hotel side to freak out about. Indeed, it seems like business as usual for this hotel guest.
The government is shutting down and I'm over here trying to get more towels for my hotel room. #shutdown— Mathurin (@iqmatt) October 1, 2013
