PwC's lodging forecast anticipates moderate growth in lodging demand, combined with slowing supply growth, will slightly increase hotel occupancy rates to 55.4 percent in 2010.

Hotel pricing power is expected to remain weak and average daily rates (ADR) are expected to fall further, resulting in a 1.5 percent decline in revenue per available room (RevPAR) in 2010.
