The state of the hotel industry

The state of the hotel industry

Mark Woodworth of PKF Hospitality Research in Atlanta is one of my favorite industry experts when it comes to getting meaningful information and helpful forecasts. He lived up to the highest expectations at JMBM’s recent Meet the Money conference.

His slide presentation addressed a lot of critical questions we’re all asking, including:

  • Where are we in the hotel cycle? 
  • What’s happening with corporate profits, job growth and lodging demand? 
  • What’s the effect of the housing problem? 
  • What is the forecast? 
  • What’s the impact of oil prices on lodging demand?
