This collection of stories and infographics explores the dynamics of hotel real-estate trends, from identifying hot markets to determining cost fluctuations.

Location, location, location. That’s always been the phrase for real estate, and it’s no different for hotels. Given today’s full menu of brand and chain-scale options, hotel developers have many opportunities to realize real estate returns.

Select-service hotels still remain an industry darling for developers, thanks to their smaller footprints and lower operating costs. Locating those types of properties in a high-barrier-to-entry gateway downtown market is proving even more lucrative for developers. However, as both business and leisure travel continue to grow in the United States, demand for different markets and property types remains viable. With U.S. supply and demand levels still in a comfort zone, hotel real estate is still a good place for investment.

Smart hotel developers must balance brand offerings and guest preferences with land and building costs in order to see optimal returns for the hotel product they choose. This special report covers trends in hotel real estate, from identifying hot markets to pinpointing cost dynamics.
