The Hotel Industry is Booming ! Rates are up almost everywhere !

The hotel industry is booming across most of the world with business and leisure volumes growing, according to an Amex Hotel GBT monitor report.
Analysis of The Hotel Monitor 2020 Cities Forecast shows that while international trade tensions continue to dampen the economic outlook, there us a healthy global hotel construction pipeline.
According to the report, that should mean in most cities, that hotel rates remain “stable or see only modest rises”.
But, in a number of “outlier” cities, where there is usually a strong mix of business and leisure demand, pronounced price moves are likely.
There were big rises predicted for Buenos Aires in Argentina, Ankara in Turkey and Sofia in Bulgaria.
The forecasts were made in local currencies, so in destinations where inflation rates are volatile, the picture may look “significantly different” to those buying accommodation using foreign currencies.
