The hotel market in Tempe is surging. Last year, hotel room rentals were up by 250,000 rooms over 2017, according to research from the Tempe Tourism Office. Hotel sales totaled $175 million, a 12% year-over-year increase and a $36 million increase over 2016. Demand for hotel space in Tempe has been steadily increasing in pace with office and population growth. In 2018, new hotel supply helped the market to achieve these significant gains.

“We have had a lot of demand for a long time, but our supply has not been enough to meet that demand,” Maria Laughner, economic development specialist at the Tempe Tourism Office, tells GlobeSt.com. “In 2018, we finally had enough new hotel supply to meet the demand. We had 600 new hotel rooms come online last year, and another 500 are in the pipeline to come online this year. That is just in the Downtown area.”
