Bjorn Hanson, a professor of hospitality at New York University, said determining per-room profit isn't easy, "but it can be done to some reasonable degree of accuracy on guest rooms."

Hanson said the math would be trickier for large-scale events like banquets. And there could be other adjustments, like special room assignments, complimentary breakfasts and negotiated rates.
Still, Hanson said, it would be possible to factor those in and come up with an amount that represents how much money the hotel made off a dignitary's stay and set it aside for a donation to the U.S. government.

Your chances of ending up in a less desirable room increase when you book through a third-party site, says Bjorn Hanson, dean of New York University's Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism, and Sports Management. That includes rooms near the loading dock, the service elevator or a renovation zone, he says.

For nearly two decades, Bjorn Hanson, Ph.D., was the architect of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Annual Lodging Industry Forecast, long considered the gold standard in the hospitality field. Now a professor at New York University's Tisch Center, his analysis remains a barometer for many in the hospitality industry.

While there are no surprises in his consensus outlook for 2010, Hanson sees a number of fundamentals that will challenge the industry for years to come. According to Smith Travel Research, one key lodging metric, Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) will decline only 4 to 5 percent next year. But that number comes on top of "The Perfect Storm" that saw a 17 percent drop in 2009.
"Historically," said Hanson, "we've seen numbers like this twice before. But never for a period this long."
He cautioned against reading too much into what he termed false positives.
