Lodging in Ecuador has been severely hit by the event of COVID-19, resulting in the cessation of activities for several months and, for some establishments, permanent closure. The lodging sector did implement safety measures and make sharp reductions in rates, however, hotel occupancy reached a historic lows.
Lodging is a category requiring some of the most efficient and complex biosafety procedures in the face of the pandemic. Since the start of COVID-19, protocols have been refined and reinforced in closed spaces such as hotel rooms, restaurants, event rooms, and social areas.
Recovery in lodging in Ecuador will depend of several external factors: the overall health situation in the country; the lifting of government restrictions; and, above all, the habits of international travellers in relation to their levels of confidence to travel to and book lodgings in the country. Regarding domestic tourism, the most popular destinations traditionally were and continue to be coastal areas.
It is anticipated that hotels will continue to offer lower rates and extra services in order to mitigate the lack of foreign visitors (for example, wealthier guests and business guests). These expected lower rates and promotions will provide opportunities for both four-star and five-star hotels in particular, which depend strongly on the wealthy and business segments of foreign travellers.
