HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee -- The U.S. hotel industry reported mostly flat year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 16-22 July 2017, according to data from STR.


In comparison with the week of 17-23 July 2016, the industry recorded the following

  • Average daily rate (ADR): +0.5% to US$131.86
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +0.4% to US$102.85

Among the Top 25 Markets, San Francisco/San Mateo, California, registered the largest year-over-year increase in RevPAR (+9.0% to US$235.25), due primarily to the week's highest rise in ADR (+7.0% to US$249.79).

Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Virginia, posted the week's largest increase in occupancy (+3.0% to 83.4%) and the second-highest rise in RevPAR (+5.4% to US$117.12).

Three Top 25 Markets reported double-digit RevPAR decreases for the week: Chicago, Illinois (-13.6% to US$123.93); Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-New Jersey (-13.4% to US$98.54); and St. Louis, Missouri-Illinois (-12.7% to US$79.94).
