Honolulu posted the second-highest hotel rate increases among North American cities in the February Hotwire Hotel Rate Report.The city's ranking, which came in behind Pittsburgh, was a step down from the top spot that it occupied in the January report.
I wouldn't take the Hotwire report to the bank. However, I would consider all the stories of hotel building going on in Pittsburgh over the last few years. I recall reading that the region is under-served in terms of capacity. I conclude that the supply isn't keeping up with the demand.
Why are so many people looking to spend the night in Pittsburgh?
