“Nearly 49% of U.S. hotel room construction is occurring in the 26 markets with the highest existing supply numbers,” said Bobby Bowers, STR’s senior VP for operations.

Among those Top 26 Markets, New York, New York, reported the most rooms Under Contract (34,217 rooms) and most rooms In Construction (14,544 rooms).

“New York continues to rank atop the pipeline list while accounting for roughly 10% of all U.S. room construction activity,” Bowers said. “New York’s under construction total also represents more than 12% of its existing room supply-by far the highest percentage of the 26 largest U.S. markets.”

Six additional markets each reported more than 10,000 rooms Under Contract for the month: Houston, Texas (18,069 rooms); Dallas, Texas (15,088 rooms); Miami/Hialeah, Florida (13,033 rooms); Los Angeles/Long Beach, California (12,354 rooms); Orlando, Florida (10,979 rooms); and Washington, D.C.-Maryland-Virginia (10,578 rooms).

(3,339 rooms); and Chicago, Illinois (3,302 rooms).

“New supply in Houston and lagging demand due to low oil prices will create significant headwinds for that market in 2016,” Bowers said.

Three markets each reported fewer than 500 rooms under construction: Oahu Island, Hawaii (482 rooms); St. Louis, Missouri-Illinois (407 rooms); and Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Virginia (300 rooms).
