The hotel crisis is now a real-life disaster for some hoteliers in Denver.
The city’s hotels are now under the control of the city’s Department of Public Health, which has recently passed a law allowing it to close hotels at any time without notice.
A new city report says that, for the first time, there’s a shortage of hotel beds in the city, and the hotels themselves are struggling to stay open.
Denver has seen a rapid increase in the number of hotels in recent years, with more than 3,300 hotel rooms built since 2009, according to the Denver Post.
But the city says the hotels aren’t meeting the demand, and that many of them have been operating at near capacity.
The hotels’ owners say they need to expand, or risk being forced to close.
But many hotel owners and managers say they’re not interested in making a big investment in new hotels, even if that means they risk losing the jobs that pay their salaries.
A recent survey of the Denver Hotel and Lodging Association found that nearly 70% of the association’s members said they’re ready to close their hotels, according the Denver News.
Some hotel managers and owners are also questioning the city and state’s willingness to spend money to help them stay open, citing the hotel shortage as one of the reasons.
But they’re also worried about the impact on hotel revenue.
The Associated Press found that more than half of Denver hotel room reservations made between July 1 and Aug. 3 were canceled.
A Denver hotel manager, who declined to be named, told the AP that the city had spent about $1 million on new hotels since July 1.
He said he was unsure if the hotel situation would get better with the new laws, because the city has to work with the state and the county to try to find enough beds.
He also said that the state’s response to the hotel problem hasn’t been “quite on point.”
“The state of Colorado’s response has been pretty minimal, but it’s certainly on point,” the manager said.
He added that the new regulations could help the hotel industry by forcing the city to find more hotel rooms.
“We’re not getting the rooms we need,” he said.
“So the state can get the beds they need.
That’s a good thing.”
