For the Week Ending September 4th U.S. Hotel Performance Increased Slightly from the Previous Week

Lifted by Labor Day weekend, Hurricane Ida evacuations and the return of college football, U.S. hotel performance increased slightly from the previous week, according to STR‘s latest data through 4 September. 

29 August through 4 September 2021 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019*):

  • Occupancy: 61.3% (+0.7%)
  • Average daily rate (ADR): US$132.94 (+9.4%)
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): US$81.54 (+10.1%)       

Comparisons with 2019 were higher due to a lower performing week that year. 

In terms of Hurricane Ida-related demand, the largest jumps were seen in markets in Mississippi, Alabama, and Northern Louisiana.

Among the Top 25 Markets, Houston recorded the highest occupancy (+50.5% to 76.6%) and RevPAR (+77.1% to US$77.82) increases over 2019.  

Oahu Island experienced the steepest decline in occupancy when compared with 2019 (-36.0% to 53.4%). 

Miami reported the largest ADR increase over 2019 (+42.4% to US$179.36). 

The largest RevPAR deficits were in San Francisco/San Mateo (-51.9% to US$86.93) and Oahu Island (-38.3% to US$117.88).
