US leads the way in hot hotel development market

The hotel development industry is hitting numbers never seen nor experienced before. Globally there are 14,051 projects in the works, which equates to about 2.3 million rooms.

In the US, NYC led the way with 166 projects, followed by Dallas (162 projects), LA (158 projects) and Houston (146 projects).
