GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Lodging tax is down in Grand Junction, but that doesn’t necessarily mean there are fewer heads in Grand Junction hotel beds.

According to the Visitor and Convention Bureau, November saw an 18 percent decrease in lodging tax from a year ago. However, officials say the decrease is less than they saw in October, which was down 28 percent from last year.

Fewer visitors are impacting the numbers, but officials say what’s really having an effect is the average daily rate hotels are charging guests. Since hotels are charging less for the rooms, they’re collecting less tax.
