The Jersey Shore family is growing, with DJ Pauly D bringing in his girlfriend Nikki Hall from the Las Vegas spin-off Double Shot at Love in the trailer for Season 4 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation.

The 40-year-old DJ (real name Paul D. DelVecchio Jr.) was seen kissing Hall, who he first met on the first season of Double Shot at Love in 2019. 

The couple revealed they were still together during the reunion special that aired in early October, and the couple has been quarantining together in Las Vegas.

The new season was shot under quarantine in a completely empty Las Vegas hotel, in the aftermath of the Season 3 finale featuring Angelina Pivarnick and Chris Larangeira’s wedding in Las Vegas.

The trailer makes it clear right away that the whole season is taking place in one place, with Pauly D proclaiming on a lavish patio, ‘I rented the whole hotel!’

There is also a shot of Angelina revealing in confession that, ‘things are not good between me and the girls.’

She is likely referring to the girls’ – Nikki ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley and Deena Cortese – controversial bridesmaid speech, which ultimately lead to Snooki quitting the show. 

Deena Cortese is seen saying, ‘just let it go away,’ while we see a number of random shots including the guys racing down the hotel hallways in luggage carts.

Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino adds in confession, ‘The future of this family is going sideways real quick.’

Woman is arrested after “fight” at hotel: Independence Police Blotter

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio

Disorderly conduct, Quarry Lane

A woman was arrested for disorderly conduct when police responded to a reported fight between two women and a man inside a hotel at 10:16 Oct. 10. When police questioned the three suspects, they each told the officer “they were having sex, not fighting,” reports said. All three were evicted from the hotel.  A short time later, police were called back to the hotel as one of the women had returned. She was cited and later released to her brother.

Employees at Independence Excavating reported a pickup truck stolen from a garage on the property at 4:42 a.m. Oct. 11. The company provided police with surveillance camera footage showing a man arriving at the property, cutting the lock on the gate, and trying to enter several vehicles in the company lot. The stolen 2016 GMC Sierra was inside the garage, unlocked with its keys inside. The suspect is seen backing the pickup he arrived in into the man door of the garage in order to jar it open. He is then seen leaving in the Sierra. Reports did not indicate where or how the suspect’s pickup was driven from the lot.

Theft, Chestnut Oval

A woman reported leaving her purse and phone inside a Drug Mart store at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 5. The woman checked with store personnel who told her that the purse had not been turned in to the lost and found.  In addition to the victim’s driver’s license and credit cards, the $50 purse contained a $60 wallet, $800 iPhone, and $23 cash.

Plans for indoor recreation complex on hold for now | News

“The need for these recreational facilities as the community grows is not going away,” Bina said. “When the time is right, we have to approach it in a way we feel the community wants us to approach it and will support it.”

The recreation complex was projected to cost $114.5 million. Donations were expected to cover up to 10% of the cost. A feasibility study paid for by Parks and Recreation said the complex would bring in $2.6 million in revenue annually, and annual expenses were projected at $3.1 million. Expenses not covered by revenue were to be paid for in the Parks and Recreation budget. A location for the facility was not selected before the vote.

The plans for the complex included a main building, a separate facility for an ice rink and a courtyard between the two buildings. Also included were a four-lane running and walking track, an adventure trail, five indoor pickleball courts, six tennis courts, two full-size gymnasiums, four racquetball courts, a gymnastics facility and an indoor turf field.

Those features came from the feedback Parks and Recreation received from the community, Jeske said.

Bina said the facility was planned to address the city’s needs in the long term.

“We tend to look at how Bismarck is today,” he said. “And this complex would probably be a 50- to 75-year facility. One thing I think most of us agree on is that we continue to grow.”

Why you need to take your vacation days, even if you’re stuck at home

While the COVID-19 pandemic may have canceled your vacation plans, it’s more important than ever to make sure you’re taking advantage of your paid vacation days to get some rest and take a break from your work. Even if you’re stuck in the house, doing so is vital to your own happiness and productivity once you do get back to work.

Vacation Time Is Important Even Under Quarantine

Coronavirus Flight Refund Policies and Other COVID-19 Travel Answers

Gallery: The Worst Etiquette Mistakes You Can Make (The Daily Meal)

According to a report by the U.S. Travel Association, 85% of managers participating in a study believed that time off allowed their employees to work more efficiently and productively once they were back to work. Yet another study cited in the same report found that 82% of small business owners who took a vacation saw an increase in job performance afterward. So, it’s actually good for your managers and job if you step away every now and then.

Even if your travel plans have been canceled, under the present circumstances, it’s important to manage anxiety over the coronavirus pandemic and the everyday stressors that come with it. That includes work. If you’re working from home, it can be quite difficult to differentiate between work and home, but you need time away from your job even if you’re not going any farther than your own backyard. And, hey, that yard can be quite fun if you create the ultimate staycation.

New Bunkhouse Hotel Opens In Austin, Texas

It goes without saying that Austin, Texas, is a synonym for hipster city. It’s also laid-back, funky, creative and seriously musical. And if any hotel aims to embody the spirit of Austin, that would have to be the Bunkhouse Group hotels. 

Since its inception in 2006, this acclaimed hotel group has been steadily growing and currently has several properties in and out of Texas. These include Saint Cecilia (the secluded luxury estate in Austin), Austin Motel (perhaps the most stylish motel you’ve seen), and Hotel Havana (the historic property on San Antonio’s River Walk), just to name a few. 

As of September, a new hotel has been added to its expanding portfolio: Hotel Magdalena opened this month on Music Lane in the thriving South Congress neighborhood of Austin. 

With 89 rooms, it is the largest hotel to date within Bunkhouse Group, and will be the first mass timber hotel constructed in North America. Assembled in pieces, this renewable resource is visible in the hotel room ceiling design and the exterior walkways. The design throughout the property is evocative of Barton Springs — Austin’s most cherished natural-spring outdoor pool — and is complete with a rock quarry and a 900 sq ft pool. 

On the gastronomic front, the hotel’s restaurant, Summer House on Music Lane, will open this November. Open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, Executive Chef Jeffrey Hundelt will be cooking over a live fire and, in response to the current challenge imposed by the Covid-19, there will be 70 covered outdoor patio seats. 

Amar Lalvani, CEO of Standard International and Bunkhouse Group, explained in an interview the challenges of opening a new hotel during a pandemic, the meaning of adding a new hotel to the group, and the hotel’s role in the community. 

Bunkhouse Group has several hotels, not only in Texas but California and Mexico. How does Hotel Magdalena differ from them, especially from those in Austin, while keeping the Bunkhouse identity? 

“All of the hotels share the elements Bunkhouse cares deeply about: inspired design, connection to the place (the locations and the buildings themselves) and the value of community, culture and music. However, each is a unique expression of those values and vary in their feel, as well as their offerings, programming and price. From the welcome accessibility of the Austin Motel (Austin) and Phoenix Hotel (San Francisco) to the tucked-away privacy of Hotel Saint Cecilia (Austin), Hotel San Cristóbal (Todos Santos, Mexico) and Hotel Havana (San Antonio) and of course the Hotel San José (Austin) where it all started which feels as relevant and progressive now as it did when its renovation was completed 20 years ago.

Hotel Magdalena is the first one in Austin truly developed from the ground up (the three prior were at least some portion historical renovations) and is a hidden world unto itself just off South Congress. It’s also the

Hotel REITs: Winter’s Coming | Seeking Alpha

REIT Rankings: Hotels

(Hoya Capital Real Estate, Co-Produced with Brad Thomas)

Hotel REIT Sector Overview

Hotel REITs – along with the global leisure and tourism industry – have been decimated by the coronavirus pandemic, plunging more than 50% this year as “no vacancy” has quickly become “no occupancy.” Following a record year of occupancy and revenues in 2019, the hotel REITs recorded a mind-blowing 90% plunge in RevPar (“Revenue Per Available Room”) by mid-2020, forcing every hotel REIT to slash its dividend this year as the sector faces an ongoing existential crisis. Within the Hoya Capital Hotel REIT Index, we track the 18 largest hotel REITs, which account for roughly $25 billion in market value.

hotel REITs

Hotel REITs ultimately remain at the mercy of the coronavirus pandemic, which forced roughly half of hotels in the U.S. to temporarily close during the peak of the lockdown in April, though the majority of hotel properties have since opened – generally with reduced capacity. Hotel ownership is a tough, capital-intensive business even in the best of times, and hotel REITs tend to be “overweight” in the most affected segment of the lodging industry: corporate travel, group bookings, and international tourism. Demand from these segments is closely correlated with domestic air travel, which has exhibited a slow recovery from its lows in April according to TSA Checkpoint data. Airline travel bottomed in early April at just 4% of its prior-year levels but has rebounded to roughly 35% of “normal” by late September.

tsa travel data 2020

While leisure demand should bounce back relatively quickly when the pandemic subsides, business and group demand may take up to a half-decade or longer to fully recover. In terms of occupancy, suburban-focused and leisure-oriented properties have outperformed urban hotels that cater more towards the more affected business-oriented segments, resulting in significant underperformance by hotel REITs relative to the national averages. According to data from STR, hotel occupancy bottomed out at just 24.5% in April but has recovered to 48.6% in the week ending September 19th and has held onto recent gains despite the seasonal headwinds. Room rates, however, remain lower by 29% from last year, amounting to a total revenue per available room (RevPAR) decline of a whopping 51.6%.

hotel occupancy 2020

Hotel REITs are the single-most economically sensitive REIT sectors, and as we’ll expand on throughout this report, we view hotel REITs as a more “pure play” on the success of a coronavirus vaccine than even the pharmaceuticals themselves. A rebound in economic activity since April, led by resilient strength in the critical U.S. housing sector, has stabilized the macroeconomic outlook, but a significant “second-wave” of the pandemic and resulting economic lockdowns would be likely catastrophic for equity holders. Below, we present a framework for analyzing each property sector based on its direct exposure to the anticipated COVID-19 effects, as well as its general sensitivity to a potential recession. We note that hotel REITs fall into the “High” category in both direct COVID-19 sensitivity as well as general economic sensitivity.

Trump campaign eyes election night party at his sold-out DC hotel

9 tips for picking the best ski vacation home rental

There’s really nothing quite like a ski trip — especially one you can take with family or friends. There’s a healthy, central activity to do during the day but with a big wide mountain (or, several, to choose from depending on where you go), there’s also the freedom to spread out and do things your own way so you don’t get tired of each other by the second afternoon.

Then in the evenings, you get to regale each other with tales of your day on the mountain, soak in the hot tub and enjoy some apres-ski beverages as you plot doing it all over again the next day. You can take this type of ski trip and still stay in a hotel, but with a group, it can actually be much more affordable and enjoyable to headquarter out of a ski vacation home rental than individual hotel rooms.

For more TPG travel news and advice delivered each morning to your inbox, sign up for our free daily newsletter.

While there are similarities in what to look for in a ski vacation home rental and, say, a beach home rental, there are also some major differences. You’ll want to do all the normal things you do when looking for the perfect home rental such as read reviews, fully inspect the photos, etc. But, if you’re in the market for a ski home rental, here are nine specific things to keep in mind to find the best snowy house for your situation.

Bigger is better

Coronavirus issues aside, generally speaking, ski houses become better deals the bigger you go. The really awesome, fully decked-out ski homes with pool tables, vaulted ceilings, hot tubs and chef kitchens are usually the larger homes with four, five or six bedrooms.

Not only are the larger ski houses usually nicer than say the two-bedroom condos, but if you are sharing the big house with another family or two, you’ll also come out better financially than if you are paying the full rate for a two-bedroom ski home or condo just for your family.

For example, we rented a 4,000-square foot home in Breckenridge that was rated for 22 people for $1,100 per night. That’s obviously a big number, but the home pretty comfortably held three families of four and three sets of grandparents. Start dividing that cost out by family and the true cost per person or family isn’t that hefty … and the big home had a sledding hill, foosball, good kitchen and a hot tub.

Federal hotel funding extended for fire survivors in Santa Cruz County

SANTA CRUZ COUNTY — Federal Emergency Management Agency hotel funding that was set to expire Monday, will be automatically extended for more than 250 CZU August Lightning Complex fire survivors until Nov. 2.

As of Tuesday, the FEMA funding is covering the cost of 138 hotel rooms for fire refugees in Santa Cruz County. Those survivors have struggled to find more permanent housing, but would have been forced to, if the extension had not gone through.

The California Office of Emergency Services worked with FEMA to extend the hotel funding, according to county communications manager Jason Hoppin.

“We’ve been working very hard on an independent level with enrollees to find an alternative with them,” Hoppin said. “The easiest alternative is to just extend the program, which is good news for us and them. For most of these people this will be a one month extension while they work on next steps.”

Fire refugees utilizing the program have the option to extend their hotel stay up to Nov. 24.

For those survivors that wish to stay enrolled in the program, Hoppin said, they must apply for disaster assistance through FEMA. That means residents must supply eligibility documents and personal information to get an extension.

There’s been challenges obtaining that information from some enrollees, according to Hoppin.

“For some people we have not been able to determine if they’re eligible because they’re not sharing their information with us,” he said.

In some cases that’s because residents lost their possessions in the fire. Others are fearful to enroll because of mistrust of government, and in a few isolated cases, Hoppin said, there may be people fraudulently enrolled.

“When you’re dealing with someone that presents to you as fire survivor…it is difficult to demand paperwork to prove everything they’re telling you because of the nature of the situation,” Hoppin said. “It’s pretty clear the program is for survivors and not anyone else so we want to make sure the resources are going to people who need it.”

“There is a set criteria and qualifying process for FEMA funded shelters and hotels,” said FEMA spokeswoman BrianaSummer Fenton. “That includes registering with FEMA and describing disaster-caused damages and losses, as well as supplying your social security number, proof of address and occupancy of a damaged primary dwelling.”

The county urges enrollees that wish to stay in their hotel room past Nov. 2 to visit https://www.disasterassistance.gov/.

“It’s a relief,” said 3rd District Santa Cruz County Supervisor Ryan Coonerty of the program extension. “It’s short term so we still have to help individuals find somewhere permanent, but it definitely takes a little bit of the pressure off.”
