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.
