We already know there are a lot of rooms in the pipeline—more than half a million, according to experts at Smith Travel Research and Lodging Econometrics. What I didn’t realize until the soft-spoken Sorenson said it was that there are large hotels—affectionately known as supertankers to some industry veterans—in the pipeline.» —“Sooner or later…I guess now is later” by Jeff Higley Hotel & Motel Management May 7, 2007.
