AAHOA President & CEO Cecil P. Staton issued the following statement on President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election:

"On behalf of AAHOA’s 20,000 hotel owners, we offer our sincere congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. We wish them success in their endeavors to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, reinvigorate travel, and get our economy back on track. We will work to ensure they honor their commitments to help small business owners, especially those hit hardest by the pandemic. America's hotel owners look forward to working with the Biden administration and congressional leadership to help small businesses come out on the other side of this crisis.

"When the 116th Congress returns for the lame duck session later this month, America's hoteliers will continue to press them and the Trump administration to work together to pass a new economic stimulus to help the people and industries hit hardest by this pandemic, including hoteliers. 

"America's hotel owners also offer our thanks to President Trump. Under his leadership, we saw the elimination of numerous burdensome regulations and the most significant tax reform in three decades. We hope his presidency inspires more hoteliers to answer the call of public service and seek opportunities to lead in their communities."


AAHOA is the largest hotel owners association in the world. The nearly 20,000 AAHOA members own almost one in every two hotels in the United States. With billions of dollars in property assets and hundreds of thousands of employees, AAHOA members are core economic contributors in virtually every community. AAHOA is a proud defender of free enterprise and the foremost current-day example of realizing the American dream.
