  • Q4 2018 Hotel Horizons® Forecasts Update

    by Jamie Lane | Mar 05, 2019
    Hotel Horizons® Q4 2018
    March 2019 - May 2019 edition now available

    We have completed our national and market level forecasting. Our data platform has been updated and new statistics are available on the Property Information Portal (PIP). 

    Features of our National Hotel Outlook Include:   

    • U.S. Hotel ADR growth is forecast to exceed 2.6% in 2019 and again in 2020, with a deceleration to 1.3% in 2021. Using RevPAR as the barometer, the greatest gains will be achieved in the Luxury and Economy segments through 2020. Occupancy levels for the U.S. lodging industry continued to grow through 2018. For the year, the national occupancy was 66.2% according to STR, the fourth consecutive record since 1988. Given the high occupancy levels achieved throughout 2018, it will be a challenge to increase occupancy once again in 2019 and beyond. The combination of increasing supply, tempering economic growth, and consumer uncertainty is projected to result in a slowdown in the pace of demand growth over the next three years. It is important to note; however, that the national occupancy level will remain at least 200 basis points above the STR 62.5% long-run average.

  • New Q3 2018 Hotel Horizons® Forecasts

    by James Lane | Nov 20, 2018

    We have completed our national and market level forecasting. Our data platform has been updated and new statistics are available on the Property Information Portal (PIP). 

    Features of our National Hotel Outlook Include:   

    U.S. Hotel RevPAR is expected to grow by just 2.7% in 2019. This is the lowest rate of growth since the recovery began in 2010. While operating margins are at the highest levels since 1960, we do not expect any more growth in the margin during this cycle primarily because of rising labor costs. CBRE forecasts a 1.9% increase in the number of available U.S. hotel rooms from 2018 to 2019. This is slightly less than 2018’s growth rate of 2.0%. With the slowing growth rate, it appears that supply growth has peaked, which should provide some relief for hotel owners and operators in 2019 and beyond.
