Happy New Year indeed! It’s hard to know where to begin with the positive predictions for 2015. Pop the cork, pour the bubbly, and celebrate
- The US lodging industry will achieve a 65% national occupancy rate. That’s the highest since Smith Travel Research Inc. began reporting data in 1987.
- PKF Hospitality (PKF-HR) predicts that hoteliers will be able to increase average daily rates (ADR) at an average annual pace of 5.7% through 2017.
- The combination of high occupancy and ADR growth will perpetuate strong bottom line gains. PKF-HR projects that the current three-year streak of double-digit gains in net operating income will continue through 2016.
