Going into fall and the peak leaf season, hoteliers like John Winkenwerder are looking for strong sales.
"You're always happy when business is up," said Winkenwerder, who heads South Asheville Hotel Associates with three Hampton Inn properties and Homewood Suites by Hilton on Tunnel Road. He does worry that Asheville could overbuild its room capacity given the recent spate of plans to build downtown hotels. "Sure we could use some new product," Winkenwerder said, "but the history shows that after most recessions as financing becomes available, developers will typically overbuild, then the hotel industry will be in its own recession again." But he said Asheville's current array of hotels from most expensive to budget level is as competitive as any city in the country. He looks forward to a strong fall regardless of the forecasts for leaf color.

"We are getting a lot of calls from people checking on availability of rooms, and they're asking about the availability of gas," said John Winkenwerder, managing partner of the South Asheville Hotel Group, which operates three area Hampton Inns and the Homewood Suites on Tunnel Road."Most of the people I've talked to in the city's tourism industry are seeing a 25-35 percent decline in sales for September," Winkenwerder said."That's a paralyzing number."Winkenwerder also blamed the hurricanes that have blasted the Gulf Coast this month.The storm warnings caused many tourists from the Midwest who stop in Asheville on their way to Myrtle Beach or Florida to change their plans. "You lay on the roller coaster stock market and now this gas shortage, and we're down 25 percent for the month," Winkenwerder said.
