The U.S. hotel industry reported positive results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 30 April to 6 May 2017, according to data from STR.

Among the Top 25 Markets, Nashville, Tennessee, posted the largest year-over-year increase in RevPAR (+18.4% to US$128.97). Growth was driven by the week’s only double-digit lift in ADR (+11.2% to US$155.01) as well as the second-largest rise in occupancy (+6.5% to 83.2%).
