Look closely. This is a breakdown of available rooms by hotel size, courtesy of the American Hotel & Lodging Association’s latest industry profile. It clearly shows that most of the room inventory in America can be found at the small- and medium-size properties.
For example, in the “under 75 room” category, we have just over 1 million rooms. In the 75 to 149-room division, there are about 1.5 million rooms. Mega-resorts with more than 500 rooms represent about ten percent of the number of rooms.
And that’s not all.
