Nashville, TN (WTVF) — As we continue to rebound from the pandemic, Nashville hosts concerts and festivals.

It’s great for people to come back to the city, but the hotel is struggling because it faces multiple shortages.

Leesa LeClaire, general manager of Hilton Nashville Airport, states that the pandemic has brought some difficult times to the hospitality industry.

“Now everyone is burdened.”

Hotels around Nashville are greeting more and more guests as concerts and live face-to-face events return to Music City.

“March was a bit of a pain as the number of occupants surged faster than expected,” said Le Claire.

Many hotels face a shortage of employees, but they are in another difficult situation.

“We are really struggling with talent and supply chain resources such as pool chlorine and getting soap and shampoo for room amenities.”

LeClaire says they have to be creative in order to adapt.

“People don’t change bed sheets every day at home, so they don’t do it here either, and I think people I think are okay with that,” Le Claire said.

Hilton offers guests the option to opt in or out of housekeeping services.

“We were able to be creative with our staffing, and we actually have a room attendant cleaning the room later in the day,” says Le Claire.

Hilton, like many others, employs and is in desperate need of workers.

Until then, please be patient with everyone.

“When it’s not always full, or when it’s always full, it’s always easy to manage. This keeps the number of hours you can give people and the supplies you need to buy stable, so there’s light at the end. I think. Tunnel. I have high expectations. “

According to the American Hotel Androsing Association, hotels in Nashville have more than 1,600 jobs.
