U.S. Lodging Outlook Good Through 2020, Economic “Blip” Causes Slowdown In 2021 Before Returning to Positive Growth for 2022
CBRE Group, Inc. | February 25, 2019
Atlanta – February 25, 2019 – A favorable economic outlook will lead to continued growth in U.S. hotel revenues and profits through 2020. However, an economic slowdown in 2021 will cause a short-lived softening of lodging industry fundamentals that year. According to the March 2019 edition of Hotel Horizons®, CBRE Hotels Americas Research is forecasting U.S. hotel rooms revenue per available room (RevPAR) to increase by 2.5 percent in 2019 and an additional 2.0 percent in 2020.

Through the end of Q3 2018, Wall Street is enjoying another heyday as profits for commercial banks are at a record high, the stock market is in its longest bull run in history, the U.S. economy is humm...

by: Robert Mandelbaum In 2017, the actual achieved levels of occupancy, average daily rate (ADR), total revenue and profits for U.S. hotels were less than their respective budgeted amounts. After a five-year period (2011 through 2015) of extremely accurate budget projections, this marks the second consecutive year that owners and operators failed to meet their operating goals. As general managers, controllers, and directors of sales begin the process of preparing their budgets and marketing plans for 2019, we present the results of our most recent look at the budgeting accuracy of U.S. hotel operators.
