Economy / Tourism & Entertainment
The Pittsburgh economy is less dependent on tourism and entertainment than is the average benchmark region.

The Pittsburgh market has moved from being ranked fourth in overall year-to-date occupancy in its comp set (June 2013) to second. Although Pittsburgh is struggling to top last year’s performance, it is still outperforming the competitive set average on an actual basis (not growth).

The area that is experiencing growth this year is average daily rate. The year-to-date average daily rate is $111.63 – up 3.2 percent compared to the same time last year. On the other hand, higher room rates + increased room supply + stagnant room demand, mostly witnessed mostly during the first quarter, is making it difficult to beat occupancy rates in previous years.
