Key points

  • Indexes are becoming challenging to translate and are less telling. Expect a shift to year-over-year percent change by March/April.
  • Group demand was slightly softer than normal in January because of weather, calendar shifts, holiday movements, and a slower New Year’s Eve.
  • The Top 25 Markets reported group demand recovery on par with all other markets, pointing to meeting planner preference for major urban centers.
  • The number of rooms in construction grew YoY, albeit modestly, while the total active pipeline continues to contract.
