The 2020 and 2021 visitor spending results for Coronado have been significantly impacted by the pandemic. Group travel disappeared for most of 2020 and early 2021, and both the limitations and restrictions to mobility, as well as economic disruptions, hit travel hard.

Group activity has been more severely impacted than leisure and continues to trail the leisure segment in the recovery phase. However, group travel has made significant strides, even exceeding 2019 levels in multiple months in 2021 in Coronado.

Hotel room revenue was down 3% relative to 2019 in 2021 with the group segment down 43%. Group visitors to Coronado still generated $51.3 million in total business sales, including indirect and induced impacts.
