Our teams are prepared for varied recovery scenarios sustained by continuously evolving new ways of operating that reduce the occupancy levels that are required to break even at the hotel operating level. Our balance sheet, including nearly $3 billion of liquidity, is a great source of strength as is the support and partnership of our hotel owner community. We continue to navigate this dynamic situation, and expect to emerge stronger when the pandemic subsides and demand returns.”
