Skift Take

It looks like tourism has rebounded in the LA region with a heavy flow of foreign tourists helping hotels reach the highest number of occupied rooms in the past 25 years.

Hotels in Los Angeles County enjoyed record occupancy rates in July thanks to surging numbers of foreign and U.S. tourists, as well as growing convention and conference visitors.

The rate of occupied rooms in the county in July hit 83.9%, the highest for any month in the 25 years that the data has been collected, according to the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board.

The record rate marks the seventh straight month of year-over-year increases and represents the latest indication that tourism — one of the region’s biggest industries — is rebounding from the economic recession of recent years.
