Hotels ready for possible hurricane

August 28, 2006

Albany--  Albany hotels are ready to handle extra guests a hurricane could send their way. The Days Inn already has reservations from guests from Miami to Tallahassee.

The hotel is busy stocking food and drinks and making sure rooms are available for the extra influx of customers. They learned lessons from Hurricane Katrina.  

"Last year because it was unexpected, we didn't allocate enough rooms so this year, we're not hoping that something worse will happen but we're making sure we have enough rooms available for everybody," says Director of Sales Emma Katigbak.  

Many Albany hotels saw a huge increase in business because of busy Hurricane seasons the last two years.

Some report a slow summer this year, but the Days Inn says business has been steady for them.
