Many hotels sold out in Albany

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

All the activities this weekend have a major impact on the economy.  Many hotels in the city are full. Hundreds of out-of-town runners and their family members are staying at the Hilton Garden Inn where they've been booked up for a while.

"We're full you can look in back, I'm telling you it's been amazing, we've had people still call waiting to come in, I think they love the fact that we have some beautiful weather," said BJ Fletcher.

The Hilton had to turn away many customers, but they tried to help them find places to stay by referring them to other hotels.
