U.S. hotel occupancy dipped 0.4% to 66.7% during the week of 25-31 August, but a 1.4% ADR increase to $127.26 pushed RevPAR up 1% to $84.87.

HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The U.S. hotel industry reported mostly positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 25-31 August 2019, according to data from STR.

• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +1.0% at US$84.87

Among the Top 25 Markets, San Francisco/San Mateo, California, registered the largest increase in RevPAR (+35.2% to US$236.56), due primarily to the only double-digit lift in ADR (+24.2% to US$267.26).

New Orleans, Louisiana, experienced the only double-digit rise in occupancy (+12.7% to 60.4%), which resulted in the second-largest jump in RevPAR (+16.4% to US$71.20).

Overall, 17 of the Top 25 Markets reported a RevPAR increase.

Orlando, Florida, saw the steepest declines in occupancy (-21.6% to 52.4%) and RevPAR (-24.1% to US$52.84).

Due to the anticipation of Hurricane Dorian, the three largest hotel markets in Florida each reported significant declines in occupancy on Friday and Saturday.
