United States -  Boston

The hub of New England's economy, Greater Boston is one of the world's most well-known intellectual centers, home to both Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), as well as numerous other universities and colleges. The medical industry also plays a vital role, spanning many world-class hospitals, such as Massachusetts General, Dana Farber, Brigham & Women's, and Beth Israel Deaconess. Other major industries include finance, technology, and bio-pharmacology. The city's hotel market was hit hard by the pandemic, but the recovery is effectively complete. The market's primary metrics, including occupancy, ADR, and RevPAR, have all returned to an approximation of their pre-pandemic levels; moreover, Boston's RevPAR has improved to third in the nation, supplanting Miami and various West Coast rivals. With a construction pipeline that is all but empty, near-term prospects for existing hotels are strong.

* Although the HVI cannot tell you what a particular hotel is worth, it does provide excellent “big picture” data, indicating which market areas are experiencing positive trends, and thus may present good investment opportunities. The HVI for the U.S. is a measure of the strength of the lodging industry as a whole and, specifically, the hospitality investment market. The HVI for the various identified markets can provide a basis to evaluate and compare different geographic regions.
