Hotel rooms in the United States surpass 5M rooms: STR

The number of hotel rooms in the U.S. reached a new record when it passed 5 million in June. The room count plateaued at 4.5 million rooms in February 2008, according to STR. The 5,001,163 rooms are in 53,554 properties nationwide.

“The hotel industry is a sector of real estate that continues to attract investors,” Amanda Hite, STR’s president and COO, said in a press release. “The rate of growth in the industry reflects the continued interest in the sector and its ability to generate return. RevPAR (revenue per available room) in the U.S. has grown year-over-year for 64 consecutive months. With more of the same in the forecast, we expect growth in the industry to continue.”
