HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee — Boosted by the Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, U.S. weekly hotel occupancy reached its highest level since late-February 2020, according to STR‘s latest data through 29 May.


23-29 May 2021 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019*):

  • Occupancy: 61.8% (-4.2%)
  • Average daily rate (ADR): US$122.06 (-1.6%)
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): US$75.42 (-5.7%)

Percentage changes were skewed more to the positive because the 2019 comparable was the week after Memorial Day. Regardless, this past Saturday’s 83.0% occupancy level was the country’s highest since October 2019. Weekly ADR and RevPAR were boosted to pandemic-era highs as well. STR analysts note that while the positives around leisure demand are obvious headed into the summer, the path to recovery remains a rollercoaster with a lack of business travel, both domestic and international, preventing hotels in many markets from making up more of the ground lost in 2020.

Phoenix (+10.0% to 64.3%) was the only Top 25 Market to report a double-digit occupancy increase over 2019 . San Francisco/San Mateo saw the steepest decline in occupancy when compared with 2019(-41.1% to 47.3%).

In terms of ADR, Miami (+52.1% to US$250.19) posted the greatest increase over 2019, followed by Phoenix (+27.4% to US$125.71).

When looking at RevPAR, Miami (+58.4% to US$185.24) and Phoenix (+40.2% to US$80.83) saw the largest increases against 2019.

The largest RevPAR deficits were in San Francisco/San Mateo (-60.4% to US$67.07) and Boston (-55.4% to US$69.79).

*Due to the steep, pandemic-driven performance declines of 2020, STR is measuring recovery against comparable time periods from 2019.
