DENVER-Even though the massive wild fires that ravaged the state last summer are gone, the state’s hotel occupancies dropped in June from June 2002.

The average occupancy rate in June was 65.8% compared with 69.3% in June 2002, according to the latest Rocky Mountain Lodging Report.

The average room rate was flat at $92.75 compared with $92.55 a year earlier.

Year-to-date the average occupancy rate was 55%, compared with $57.8% in June 2002 and the average room rate at mid-year was $92.21, compared with $96.40.

The highest room rate was found in Aspen, at $260.40 per night. That was more than twice the average hotel rate at Vail, which had an average room rate of $125.16 in June. Denver-area hotels are showing the same trend.

The report is prepared by Robert S. Benton & Associates of Denver.
