Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal took a look at the biggest hotel projects in the United States that started this year using data from Lodging Econometrics.Unsurprisingly, there are far fewer new rooms being built now than there were during the boom years of 2007 and 2008.

However, there are still some pretty impressive projects underway. The biggest hotel currently under construction is a Marriott Marquis in Washington D.C.

Most of the other major hotel projects are concentrated on the east coast.
