Hurricane Irma: Hotel rooms may become scarce

Hurricane Irma is forcing thousands of South Florida residents from their homes, and many of those people are expected to drive north to the Orlando area for refuge.

The region has more than 120,000 hotel rooms. The timing of the storm — arriving in the week after the Labor Day holiday — and the exit of tourists escaping the potential wrath of the hurricane could mean more availability.

Orlando’s Rosen Hotels & Resorts have established “distress rates” in its seven resorts for Florida residents who are Irma evacuees.

Those rates for the three Rosen Inns on Orlando’s International Drive and the Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista near Walt Disney World are $59 per night. A $79 per night rate applies to Rosen Plaza and to Rosen Centre, both on International Drive.
