First Published Feb 18 2014 09:43 am • Last Updated Feb 18 2014 09:43 am

Business was down slightly during January at hotels around Salt Lake County and the state’s ski resorts, but up elsewhere in the state.

Occupancy levels at Salt Lake County hotels slipped to 63.9 percent last month compared to 65.4 percent in January 2013. At the state’s mountain resorts, the drop was more pronounced — from 67.5 percent to 64.2 percent, according to the latest monthly figures from the Denver-based Rocky Mountain Lodging Report.

Statewide, however, hotels filled 58.8 percent of their rooms nightly in January, up from the 57.7 percent occupancy rate a year earlier, the report noted.

Some areas had marked increases, with occupancy up 11 percent in St. George, 10 percent in Davis County and 6.5 percent in Cedar City.

In all areas of Utah, hoteliers were able to charge more for rooms. The average nightly rate was up $3 statewide (from $125 to $129) and $2 in Salt Lake County (from $108 to $110), the report said.

At ski resorts, where rates are highest, the uptick was from $301-a-night to $304.
