Robert Mandelbaum | August 20, 2019

By Robert Mandelbaum and John B. Corgel, Ph.D. According to the March 2019 edition of CBRE’s Hotel Horizons® forecast report, RevPAR growth for the U.S. lodging industry will be limited to under 2.5 percent through 2020.  Further, CBRE is projecting a 0.6 percent decline in RevPAR for 2021 as CBRE expects the economy to slow down during the year.  The combination of modest increases in revenue and rising operating expenses (especially labor) make hotel owners and operators nervous about their ability to enjoy profit growth the next few years. While the profit growth story is concerning, it should it should be noted that current GOP...

Recent & Continued Supply Growth Between 2000 and 2014, rooms supply in market increased at ...

The Raptors Won the NBA Title, But What City Won the GOPPAR Crown?

David Eisen | August 12, 2019

By David Eisen Sporting events typically serve as huge hotel demand generators for a city. And when the games are really meaningful—such as a playoff round or championship final—they become even hotter tickets, which means a greater need for hotel rooms—for guests who are attending the games and those who are there just to share in the experience. These high-demand times typically (should) equate to higher occupancy, higher rates and (hopefully) higher monthly profitability. The 2019 NBA Finals, which pitted the Toronto Raptors against the Golden State Warriors, was one of these events. For Toronto, it was especially satisfying si...
