Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour has had an estimated $4.6 billion impact on the US economy. This seems absurd at first, but HVS analysis reveals that Swift’s tour is an immense outlier from other concert tours in attracting attendees from out of town. More than 3.7 million people travelled more than 100 miles from home to see Swift perform.
As HVS associates travel nationwide and experience new hotels, or newly renovated and revitalized properties, we are seeing many owners creating innovative ways to generate revenue. This article lists just a few ways we’ve recently come across.
Unlike other major markets in the U.S., the Twin Cities metro area has struggled to bounce back from the pandemic, negative safety perceptions, and the addition of new hotels. However, positive marketing campaigns, publicity from national sporting events, a strong convention outlook, and the potential for hosting the World Expo in 2027 should support a rebound for this lodging market.
The greater Tampa Bay lodging market is thriving, as evidenced by rising RevPAR levels, the entrance and subsequent absorption of significant new guestroom inventory, several high-profile transactions, and numerous exciting development projects in the market’s pipeline.
Reeling from the impact of new supply, seasonality, civil unrest, and a global pandemic, Minneapolis-St. Paul hotels faced a staggering RevPAR drop in 2020, worse than most cities in the United States. While the greater metro-area hotel market has begun to bounce back, it is at a much a slower pace than the national rebound. What has the recovery looked like thus far? When will the market return to pre-pandemic levels?
Rod Clough, President – Americas, interviewed Tanya Pierson, Senior Managing Director, Minneapolis and Justin Westad, Vice President, Minneapolis overseeing the Upper Midwest region, on March 23, 2021, to discuss the current market dynamics and the outlook for recovery.
The Twin Cities hotel market has suffered a greater loss than that of the nation given the combined impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and civil unrest. Many hotels suspended operations between April and June, with little activity taking place in urban cores. How far has the market fallen, and what will the next few years look like?
Albeit often not the winter weather, the lower cost of living, numerous leisure and recreational attractions, and the presence of Fortune 500 companies drives the appeal of the Twin Cities. While 2018 was a record year for the metro hospitality market, 2019 was less profitable for many of the roughly 370 hotels in the hub of the nation’s friendliest state.
