2019 United States Hotel Industry Outlook 
By Rod Clough, MAI

We live in interesting times. Each day, we cannot be sure which way the stock market will swing, with its volatile nature and seemingly knee-jerk reactions to the trade and policy headline of the day. If the stock market serves as a leading indicator of times to come, the economy in 2019 is likely to slow in comparison to the one to which we’ve become accustomed. Despite this trajectory, other factors still signal that the hotel industry isn’t likely falling off a cliff anytime soon.

Are Colorado Ski-Resort Hotels Posed for a Rebound? 
By Brett Russell

Owning and operating a hotel always has some degree of risk. However, for hotels located in ski-resort regions, this risk continues to be amplified. Risk factors include continued growth of the online home-sharing industry (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.) introducing new supply from non-hotel assets, as well as the seasonal nature of these mountain communities. Another factor that can greatly affect the performance of a ski resort-dependent hotel is weather. .

Baltimore has come a long way over the last 20 years, developing a tourism infrastructure and experience for leisure and convention visitors that is impressive. Baltimore’s economy is bustling, with unemployment low and the city balanced by a multitude of employment segments. Johns Hopkins remains an important cornerstone, while the Mercy Medical Center and University of Maryland Medical Center are important anchors downtown. The financial sector is also strong, particularly downtown, with major installations of accounting firms, investment firms, and commercial lending institutions all present.

HVS Market Pulse: Chicago Suburbs 
By Meghan Larmore

Overshadowed by the influx of developments in Downtown Chicago, the suburban Chicago hotel market largely depends on key locations proximate to major transportation infrastructure and anchored demand generators. New supply growth remains minimal, and this trend is anticipated to continue over the next few years, as office vacancies are filled.

HVS Market Pulse: Oklahoma City Rising 
By Rod Clough, MAI

Downtown Oklahoma City offers great lodging variety that allows a traveler to pick from the unique to the mainstream. The city has experienced a relatively large influx of new supply in recent years, and performance is holding up as of the date of this article. Our work in both the Airport and Downtown submarkets reflected occupancy remaining steady or declining slightly as of September 2018.

HVS Market Pulse: Dallas, TX 
By Kathleen Donahue

The greater Dallas area continues to be a focal point of corporate relocation and expansion, and a building boom is evident in both the urban core and outlying suburbs, with hotel construction on the rise. Year-to-date data through October 2018 illustrate a stronger increase in average rate, as new, high-quality supply has opened in the market; moreover, the commercial segment remains strong with the existing and growing corporate presence.
