With the exception of Budget & Midscale Hotels which focus on efficient & flexible design, development cost per key for all other hotel classes have increased between 10%-20% since 2013, resulting in lower project returns. We consider that further reduction in development costs “HVS 2018 Recommendations” is achievable through increasing efficiency per key, design flexibility, and alignment between the intended positioning/achievable average rate and project investment.
