Abstract

"Analysis of Hotel Guest Room Supply" is an exploratory paper that develops both a methodology and a model for estimating the expected number of hotel rooms at a destination location (MSA). The expected number of hotel employees at a destination are estimated from US government data (1980 Census of the Population and County Business Patterns). The hotel employee estimates are used to determine the expected number of hotel guest rooms for a destination location. These estimates were also applied to a third model, inventory shortage, to determine if hotel guest room supply and demand were in a state of equilibrium. The model was applied to Las Vegas, Nevada and to Phoenix, Arizona.
