Lodging Performance Outlook 2024

Luigi Major, MAI, a Managing Director of HVS Americas, led Tuesday’s special presentations with an update on hotel performance, valuation metrics and construction costs for 2024.

Luigi explained that nationwide hotel RevPAR performance remains relatively steady in 2024. Hotel values decreased 16% from 2021 peak amidst higher cost of debt and lower transaction volume, and construction costs remain elevated resulting in a slowdown in new hotel supply.
