Just a 9% reduction over 2010 levels of rooms development and a 20% fall compared to 2009, the all-time record year. 15 chains each declaring more than 1,000 rooms under development, compared to 23 in 2009. US chain Marriott again ranked No 1, with an all-time record rooms pipeline exceeding 10,000 rooms for the first time ever. Survey canvassed 104 hotels chains active in our region, compared to 80 last year. Of these, 45 chains declared future pipelines (+4 serviced apartment chains). UAE still has the largest country pipeline, while Dubai and Abu Dhabi have the largest city pipelines. 98 projects had been delayed by between 1 and 5 years compared to their original programmes declared to us in 2010. 58 projects had been put on hold or cancelled altogether since the 2010 rankings, accounting for 15,757 potential rooms. Since the recession started in earnest, back in 2009, we calculate that around 50,000 rooms in total have fallen into this category.
