Humphrey Hospitality Trust Inc., a Columbia owner of limited-service hotels, will restructure the company and revamp top management in an effort to turn around its financial fortunes. The real estate investment trust, or REIT, announced in March that it was cutting its monthly dividend and taking other actions because an affiliated company that leased and managed its hotels could not meet its rent payments. Humphrey had blamed stiff competition among limited-service hotels, a slowing economy and high energy costs for the troubles at its hotels, which include the Hampton Inn, Comfort Suites, Best Western, Days Inn and Super 8 brands.

In the wake of a faltering economy and a travel industry still reeling from Sept. 11, predictions are mixed for New Year's Eve - a holiday that traditionally has brought Baltimore hotels sellout bookings. "The demand is nowhere near what it's been in past years," said Dennis Dietz, general manager of the Days Inn Inner Harbor. "I just think that everyone is being a little more conservative with their money. The mood is more stay at home and be with family and friends rather than go out and do up the town."
