We all know that the hotelier industry was amongst the most affected by the pandemic. If last week, Hilton posted higher-than-expected quarterly losses, today the American Marriott released its financial report.

The revenue figures came in at $1.46 billion, 72.4% lower than last year’s numbers. It underperformed the $1.68 billion expected. After adjustment, Marriott had a loss per share of 64 cents.
