According to STR’s latest hotel pipeline report, Europe has 1,620 hotels with 205,383 rooms under construction as of October. 

This represented a 44.3 percent year-over-year increase in the number of rooms in the final phase of the development pipeline. 

A majority of the region’s rooms under construction are in three segments. Of those three, unaffiliated projects (as-yet unbranded) represented the largest percentage increase in activity year over year, up 88.7 percent. The upscale segment, meanwhile, has 40,750 rooms underway, up 30.9 percent, while the upper-midscale segment came in third with 32,945 rooms, up 30.6 percent.
