ATLANTA-Like Las Vegas, Orlando and other major convention and tourist destinations, metro Atlanta’s 80,000 rooms are going to be at less than capacity for the rest of this year and through 2002 before recovering in 2003, according to the hospitality research group of San Francisco-based PFK Consulting Inc.

The PFK unit projects occupancy for this year will dip to 61%, down 8.2% from 67% in 2002. Occupancy next year will fare no better with an estimated 60% occupancy. A turnaround in 2003 will raise occupancy to 65%, generally considered by hoteliers as the break-even level.

Revenue per available room this year is projected to slide by 6.2%.
