Felcor Lodging has put 14 hotels on the market a year earlier than planned.

Last year the hotel group announced that it would sell 30 of its 82-hotel portfolio in order to refocus its business on markets with higher growth prospects, especially Washington DC and New York City, according to Reuters.

The US-based hotel group expedited its plan to divest its hotel portfolio because the hotel industry has recovered faster than expected, according to Felcor.
