It’s day 26 of the partial shutdown of the U.S. government, and hoteliers in the Washington, D.C., area are approaching a timeframe where group business could be interrupted if the city’s popular demand drivers are limited.
Joseph Bojanowski, president of PM Hotel Group, which has about 11 hotels in the district and surrounding suburbs, said spring time is when the student tour season picks up, along with other big group activities, but if the shutdown continues these groups could be affected.
And if they cancel, “we’ve lost the whole season,” he said.
