According to STRís October 2017 Pipeline Report, there are 584,052 hotel rooms in 4,869 projects Under Contract in the United States, a 5.4% increase in the number of rooms Under Contract when compared with October 2016.

In the In Construction stage, the U.S. reported 183,187 rooms in 1,407 projects. Based on the number of rooms, that is a 0.1% decrease in year-on-year comparisons.

ďThis is the first time there has been a year-over-year decrease in U.S. hotel construction since October 2011,Ē said Bobby Bowers, STRís senior VP for operations. ďThe construction total also fell 2.8% from the previous month, and with the Final Planning and Planning stages not moving up significantly, we can expect to see slowing in pipeline numbers in the coming months.Ē
