“The continued tailwind of a recovering U.S. economy has supported strong (revenue-per-available-room) growth across the nation,” said Jan Freitag, senior VP of strategic development for STR, Inc. “As national and regional occupancy has increased, more developers are finding hotel real estate attractive again, and we are seeing a healthy and unabated increase in new development, mostly in the limited-service sectors.

“A few cities will feel the brunt of the construction, and it will be interesting to note how hoteliers will react in 2016 as these new hotels open,” Freitag added.
