(CNN) – Forget checking into a hotel for a long weekend or a week. In the wake of COVID-19, travelers around the world are booking stays that last a month or even longer.
According to hoteliers globally, it’s a pattern that started this summer when their properties reopened after being shuttered for several months. This trend appears to be continuing through the fall everywhere from Aspen and Ontario to all over Mexico and in Italy.
Dede Moan, the owner of Southampton Inn, in Southampton, New York, for instance, says that she has around a dozen reservations for month-long stays in August and September this year, compared with a handful last year.
