Hotel & Leisure Advisors has accumulated a database of more than 6,000 hotel sales since 2000. This article analyzes the average hotel sale prices per room for the major brands in the hotel industry. The comparison includes top 10 brands by room count.
However, the interesting data appears in the “size” of each room. Notice that the average room size is 170 square feet. What travellers don’t realize, is that they are better off spending their money on a vacation rental condo, home, villa or town home and saving twice the money.
Premise of the comparison
Vacation Rentals are a wise choice. Given the benefits of twice the space, cost privacy, and added amenities. Vacation rentals often offer additional space for less cost per night versus the typical hotel room. Amenities offered by vacation rentals often include washers and dryers in the rental, kitchens so you can save money by not having to eat at restaurants, DVD players, games and even private pools in some rentals.
Travellers are increasingly taking advantage of the space, value and amenities that vacation rentals provide and hotels just can’t live up to. With the average U.S. hotel room measuring 170 square feet in this study, and including not much more than a bed, tiny bathroom, a TV and a $4.00 bottle of FiJi spring water, it’s no wonder travelers are changing the way they choose accomodations. The more than 600 propertY listings at www.GondolaResorts.com makes it easier than ever to find the perfect accommodations for every type of travel.
