Daytona Beach, FL - The fallout from the COVID-19 epidemic is leading Volusia County beachside hotels to temporarily suspend business. Bob Davis, president and CEO of the Lodging & Hospitality Association of Volusia County, said he thinks that at least ten more hotels will soon do the same.
At least four hotels made the decision to close down and drastically reducing staff, bringing the number so far to 11. Hilton Garden Inn at Daytona Beach International Airport will be closed for a minimum of two weeks. The other three hotels, Sandals Inn and Nautilus Inn in Daytona Beach and the Royal Floridian Resort in Ormond Beach, are closed until further notice.
Hotels shut down before today are the Holiday Inn Express and the Hampton Inn in Daytona Beach Shores and the Ocean Breeze Club Hotel in Daytona Beach. They are closed until further notice.
