NEWS | The end of the luxury market as we know it?

A very interesting report was recently released by Lodging Econometrics, a research and consulting firm in New Hampshire, about the trends in hotel development that we are currently experiencing. The report said that US hotel developers are investing less in luxury properties, as the cost of providing high-end amenities rises and profit margins shrink. According to STR, the RevPAR at luxury properties was $202 in 2012, down from the 2007 high of $213. According to the report, only six luxury hotels are expected to open their doors in 2013. That number is consistent with the results seen in 2012, as a total of six properties opened that year.
