The U.S. hotel industry reported positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 8-14 October 2017, according to data from STR

In comparison with the week of 9-15 October 2016, the industry recorded the following:

  • Occupancy: +2.4% to 72.3%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): +5.3% to US$130.83
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +7.8% to US$94.58

STR analysts note that U.S. performance growth was lifted due to a comparison with a Jewish holiday time period last year.

Among the Top 25 Markets, Houston, Texas, reported the largest year-over-year increases in occupancy (+37.3% to 85.2%) and RevPAR (+57.0% to US$99.76).

Two additional markets saw RevPAR growth of more than 25.0% for the week:Washington, D.C.-Maryland-Virginia (+36.3% to US$160.43), and Dallas, Texas(+26.2% to US$96.26). Overall, 11 Top 25 Markets posted a double-digit lift in the metric.

Washington, D.C. posted the highest jump in ADR (+23.3% to US$196.22), followed by Houston (+14.4% to US$117.02) and Dallas (+14.3% to US$121.16). In total, six Top 25 Markets registered double-digit growth in the metric.

After Houston, three other markets experienced a double-digit rise in occupancy:Miami/Hialeah, Florida (+15.9% to 77.2%), Washington, D.C. (+10.6% to 81.8%) and Dallas (+10.4% to 79.4%).

Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Virginia, reported the steepest declines in occupancy (-8.6% to 60.2%) and RevPAR (-8.1% to US$55.52).
