The City of Prescott’s Office of Tourism is posting strong numbers. City officials report the latest bed tax report is continuing a very positive trend, showing the 7th consecutive month of bed tax increases. The March report indicates an increase of nearly 19 percent over the same month last year. It is also encouraging to note the PKF Consulting report from February shows Prescott continues to enjoy positive growth in occupancy and revenue per available room, compared to the City’s primary competitive destinations. Officials add the March tax collections reflect sales from February and these numbers were bolstered significantly by the Arizona Interscholastic Association tournaments. More information on the bed tax numbers is available online at cityofprescott.net.
