Hotels have been performing remarkably well lately, even with the lackluster recovery in business travel and CBRE says they are poised to hit a post-pandemic milestone: This year RevPAR in most metro markets will be back at 2019 numbers or have exceeded them. In 2022, RevPAR recovered nationally but continued to lag in many of the major markets including northern California, the upper-Midwest, and along the northeast corridor from Washington, D.C. through New York.

RevPAR for the overall U.S. lodging market is forecast to increase by 5.8%, and according to the February 2023 edition of Hotel Horizons, properties in 65 markets it analyzes are expected to record RevPAR growth of 8.8%. RevPAR gains in the top 25 markets (9.3%) are expected to surpass both the overall U.S. lodging market and the 65 Hotel Horizons markets, CBRE said.
