In the two years since the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. hotel industry has made significant progress toward recovery. U.S. hotels recaptured 83 percent of pre-pandemic RevPAR levels in 2021, and are expected to surpass the pre-pandemic comparable in 2023 on a nominal basis, according to STR and Tourism Economics’ latest forecast released earlier this year. Occupancy will likely exceed 2019 levels next year as well.

This year, LODGING takes a look at more than 50 management companies that are working to help hotels recover and thrive in 2022 and beyond.
