The U.S. hotel industry recorded its highest monthly occupancy and revenue per available room (RevPAR) since October 2019, according to June 2021 data from STR.
- Occupancy: 66.1%
- Average daily rate (ADR): US$129.00
- Revenue per available room (RevPAR): US$85.31
In addition to higher occupancy and RevPAR levels, ADR was the highest for any month since February 2020. While year-over-year percentage changes show significant increases because of comparison with a pandemic-affected period in 2020, the country’s performance levels remained below the pre-pandemic comparable of June 2019: occupancy (-9.8%), ADR (-4.0%) and RevPAR (-13.4%). To track recovery on a weekly basis, STR has launched a Market Recovery Monitor to index performance against the 2019 benchmark.
Among the Top 25 Markets, Tampa experienced the highest occupancy level (76.2%), which was a 3.2% increase over the market’s benchmark from 2019.
Markets with the lowest occupancy for the month included San Francisco/San Mateo (50.0%) and Washington, D.C. (50.8%).
Oahu Island recorded the highest ADR (US$227.22) and RevPAR (US$171.40).
Overall, the Top 25 Markets showed lower occupancy but higher ADR than all other markets.
