Starting mid-March 2020, hotels in the greater Tampa-St. Petersburg area faced record declines in demand, similar to many major markets in the United States, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, the Tampa-St. Petersburg market ended 2020 with the highest average occupancy of any of STR’s top 25 U.S. travel markets. What was the impact for local hotels in the greater metropolitan area? What will the recovery look like for the market?
Since early March, hotels in the greater Phoenix area have suffered unprecedented declines in demand; however, Phoenix outperformed many of the top 25 markets in 2020, with seasonality and demand segmentation playing a large role in the market’s performance last year. How will these factors and others impact 2021 and the recovery of the market?
The Coachella Valley is known for its signature events, including the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. With major events canceled in 2020, how did the market perform? What’s the road for recovery?
At the 2019 Phoenix Lodging Conference, the HVS Team heard muted optimism and a view that growth in the next 24 months may vary widely across markets. We would encourage owners to investigate the sometimes overlooked top 50 MSAs that still could experience value appreciation in those 24 months.
Each year, HVS researches and compiles development costs from our database of actual hotel construction budgets. This source now provides the basis for our illustrated total development costs per room/per product type.
Phoenix is undergoing economic expansion after extended post-recession recovery. Hotel-performance growth continues despite post-Super Bowl ADR correction and a large new supply pipeline; however, supply growth will soon overtake increases in demand.
While Tucson may be overshadowed by Phoenix, the market is making strides in its own right. New supply remains at healthy levels and is not expected to negatively affect performance for the greater market.
Public sector involvement in convention center hotels is common due to high cost of development and lack of private capital for such investments. Many communities provide public subsidies to projects that are not feasible on a purely private basis.
Hotel assets continued to appreciate in 2016, but at a more modest pace due to slowing RevPAR growth and a rise in cap rates. The stock market rally following the election has led to cautious optimism about what 2017 will bring.
