The HVI is the authoritative guide to U.S. hotel values, giving hotel stakeholders an educated edge in buying, selling, and holding opportunities. This online tool provides historical and projected values and RevPAR for the Phoenix market.
At the 2019 Phoenix Lodging Conference, the HVS Team heard muted optimism and a view that growth in the next 24 months may vary widely across markets. We would encourage owners to investigate the sometimes overlooked top 50 MSAs that still could experience value appreciation in those 24 months.
Each year, HVS researches and compiles development costs from our database of actual hotel construction budgets. This source now provides the basis for our illustrated total development costs per room/per product type.
Phoenix is undergoing economic expansion after extended post-recession recovery. Hotel-performance growth continues despite post-Super Bowl ADR correction and a large new supply pipeline; however, supply growth will soon overtake increases in demand.
While Tucson may be overshadowed by Phoenix, the market is making strides in its own right. New supply remains at healthy levels and is not expected to negatively affect performance for the greater market.
Public sector involvement in convention center hotels is common due to high cost of development and lack of private capital for such investments. Many communities provide public subsidies to projects that are not feasible on a purely private basis.

Hotel assets continued to appreciate in 2016, but at a more modest pace due to slowing RevPAR growth and a rise in cap rates. The stock market rally following the election has led to cautious optimism about what 2017 will bring.
Tourism to Hawaii’s most populous island is booming, with Asian-Pacific countries sourcing a major boost in visitation. Given a number of planned projects across Oahu, hotel developers and major brands are working to meet the demand.
