The Manhattan hotel market is the strongest RevPAR performer among the top-25 U.S. hotel markets with a 25% RevPAR premium over the next highest market. In 2013, Manhattan’s upper-tier hotels posted a RevPAR increase of 4.3% over 2012 levels.

Over 6,400 hotel rooms will be added to the Manhattan market in 2014, increasing the market’s room inventory by 8%. With close to 15,000 new rooms anticipated to enter the market between 2014 and 2016, Manhattan has more rooms under construction than any other U.S city.
