It could be *many many* months (if not much longer) before anything smooths out among existing hotels. There's still little reason for people to come to the DFW area at the moment, and business traffic is still at a crawl, with greater awareness and use of video-conferencing as well as working from home. The hotels that have been planned or in the pipeline really are rolling the dice. It's very unlikely for now that all the upcoming ones can open, much less make it, when there are still existing hotels that are closed or have operations that have been drastically slashed. The hotel next to the one where I work, is dealing with single-digit occupancy levels; they have no food and beverage, and our breakfast hostess is doing their room laundry.
I'm trying not to poke holes in balloons, but the industry (locally and nationally) is not going to resemble pre-virus times for a while, and any project should be considered know-it-when-you-see-it at this rate.
