There are 3,291 hotels totaling 395,078 rooms Under Contract in the United States, according to the September 2014 STR Pipeline Report.

This represents a 14.3-percent increase in the number of rooms Under Contract compared with September 2013 and a 34.5-percent increase in rooms under construction. The Under Contract data includes projects in the In Construction, Final Planning and Planning stages but does not include projects in the Unconfirmed stage.

“Rooms under construction in STR’s top 26 markets topped 45,000 in September,” said Bobby Bowers, senior VP of operations at STR, Inc. “The top markets accounted for 41 percent of total U.S. construction, down from 45 percent at the same time last year, indicating increased development activity in secondary markets. The New York market was the runaway leader with 13,605 rooms under construction—over 12 percent of the U.S. total. Houston and Washington, D.C., round out the top three markets, which together account for about one of every five U.S. hotel rooms under construction.”

Among the Top 26 Markets, New York, New York, reported the most rooms under construction in September with 13,605 rooms, a 5.3-percent increase over September 2013.
