The U.S. hotel industry reported mixed year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 1-7 July 2018, according to data from STR.
In comparison with the week of 2-8 July 2017, the industry recorded the following:
• Occupancy: -3.1% to 63.5%
• Average daily rate (ADR): +1.1% to US$123.59
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -2.0% to US$78.47
STR analysts note that occupancy declines were mostly a result of the Fourth of July holiday, especially early in the week.
