AAHOA Ownership & Economic Impact
AAHOA represents nearly 20,000 hoteliers across the U.S , and our more than 34,000 member-owned hotels with more than 1 million employees represent a significant part of the U.S. economy.
To quantify these important impacts, AAHOA engaged Oxford Economics, an international leader in global forecasting and quantitative analysis, to conduct a comprehensive economic impact analysis.
The study analyzed the share of U.S. hotels and rooms owned by AAHOA Members, hotel operations, hotel guest ancillary spending, capital investment, and indirect and induced impacts supported by AAHOA hotels in other parts of the U.S. economy – on both the national and state-by-state levels.
Full reports are now available at the bottom of this page, including the full national report, a state-by-state report that breaks down data from each state, and a helpful infographic summarizing the national data.
