In 2017, 259 extended-stay hotels with 28,990 rooms opened in the U.S.

THPT Comment: Interesting to know…i guess the bottom line is all is healthy in Europe (for hotel development) Poland is maybe the one stat that surprises us. The next question is can cities like London (actually all of them) can fill these new beds, especially when such cities have already had near-on 9,000 new beds each year for the past few years…?
