RENO, Nev. (August 26, 2021) – The Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority (RSCVA) today released transient lodging and room tax statistics showing July’s total of $53,859,311 as the highest Taxable Room Revenue ever recorded for a single month. Two of the top three revenue-producing months in Northern Nevada have come back-to-back. As previously announced, June 2021’s $45,219,688 was the most ever for the month of June.
“The Reno Tahoe team has worked tirelessly with our partners to ensure that Northern Nevada is at the top of the consideration list for travelers who are looking for a comfortable, exciting and necessary getaway,” said Reno Tahoe President and CEO Charles Harris. “Reno Tahoe offers the spaciousness that travelers desire, while still being able to deliver on our promise of entertainment and events in an atmosphere that inspires confidence in travel and a fulfillment of the need for social interaction.”
In July 2021, Cash Occupied Rooms were up 0.9%, from 329,772 to 332,717, compared to July 2019. Taxable Room Revenue in Washoe County was up 30%, from $41,432,593 to $53,859,311, over that same time period, and Average Daily Rates (ADR) increased 28.8%, from $125.64 to $161.88, breaking the previous month’s record for the highest ADR ever recorded for a single month.
