Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports Commission (TTSC) recently made the following announcement about its success in 2013 over that of 2012:
We have had a strong start to the new year. Our team continues to recruit events to Tuscaloosa that drive hotel nights, and we have been extremely pleased with the results.
December occupancy rate increased from 43.8 to 50.4 from the previous year. The year to date occupancy is continuing to rise with 2012 coming in at 59.3 versus 60.8 for 2013.
