AUSTIN (KXAN) — For the first time since the week ending March 14, hotel occupancy in Austin is nearing 50%.

According to new data from hotel analyst company STR, Austin’s hotel occupancy from June 7 to June 13 was 44.4%.

That’s the highest since the March week, when it was 53.1%.

“As we have noted, the drive-to destinations with access to beaches, mountains and parks continue to lead the early leisure recovery,” Alison Hoyt, STR’s senior director of consulting and analytics, said in a prepared statement.
