Lodging and hospitality forecast and outlook: PwC

At a glance

The economy accelerated in the fourth quarter, and occupancy gains exceeded expectations. However, economic growth is expected to slow in the first half of 2012. Hotels are expected to increasingly rely on improved pricing to drive revenue growth. We expect RevPAR growth of 6.5 percent in 2012, led by hotels in higher-priced segments.
