The U.S. hotel industry reported mixed results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 2-8 October 2016, according to data from STR.http://www.seychelles.travel/

In year-over-year comparisons, the industry’s occupancy decreased 1.0% to 70.9%. However, average daily rate (ADR) was up 1.8% to US$127.88, and revenue per available room (RevPAR) increased 0.8% to US$90.67.
