The Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority on Aug. 5 released updated transient lodging and room tax statistics, showing June 2021’s total of $45,219,688 was the highest ever for June and the second-most ever for any month ($46,663,912 generated in August 2019).

The third-highest month for taxable room revenue, according to RSCVA, was $44,483,946 in August 2018.

“Seeing the destination thrive during a challenging time speaks volumes about where Reno Tahoe is headed,” RSCVA President/CEO Charles Harris said in a statement. “The most significant indicator from June is the fact that we had more occupied rooms in Reno-Tahoe than we did in June of 2019.

“With Hot August Nights in full swing and other great legacy events like the National Championship Air Races and the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off still to come, we’re hopeful this momentum will continue throughout the summer.”

Per the Aug. 5 stats for June 2021, Cash Occupied Rooms were up 0.3%, from 318,217 to 319,124, compared to June 2019.

Taxable Room Revenue in Washoe County was up 22.1%, from $37,021,090 to $45,219,688, and Average Daily Rates (ADR) increased 21.8%, from $116.34 to $141.70, marking the highest ADR ever recorded for a single month.
