By Rachel Roginsky Despite a slow start in the first Quarter 2022, the Boston & Cambridge lodging market ramped up quickly, and by year-end, the Revenues Per Available Room (RevPAR) reached a 90% index compared to its 2019 (pre-covid) top-line performance. Like many urban gateway cities, the city struggled in its recovery from the negative effects of the pandemic in 2021, as compared to other cities located in warmer climates, which showed strong recoveries one year following the outbreak of Covid in March of 2020.

Due to a number of factors, the market experienced very strong results in Q2 and Q3 and looks to continue those trends in the Q4. 1.

By Sebastian J. Colella Despite uncertainties surrounding corporate travel and the return to the office, as well as the Delta variant and the potential for mask mandates and other state or federal restrictions, the Boston & Cambridge lodging market continues to climb a wall of worry. Driven primarily by domestic leisure travel, the market has experienced strong month-over-month gains in demand and average daily rate (ADR) since March.

Sebastian J. Colella The Boston and Cambridge lodging market accommodated approximately 7.5 million roomnights in 2018, growth in demand of 3.4% from the prior year. The market's supply increased 2.8% with the opening of four new hotels and a guestroom expansion which combined for approximately 760 new rooms available nightly. As a result of these dynamics, the market's occupancy increased 0.3% to 82.7%, its highest point in history. Despite the market's continued demand growth and capacity constraints through much of the year, average daily rate (ADR) increased only 1.6% to $262. Similar to the trends experienced nationally, the market...
