HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The U.S. hotel industry reported mostly positive results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 16-22 April 2017, according to data from STR.

Performance on Sunday and Monday of the week was lower due to a comparison with a non-Easter time period last year. In an overall comparison with the week of 17-23 April 2016, the industry reported the following:

Among the Top 25 Markets, Anaheim/Santa Ana, California, reported the largest year-over-year RevPAR increase (+11.9% to US$116.05), driven primarily by the week’s highest lift in ADR (+8.8% to US$151.38). Occupancy in the market rose 2.8% to 76.7%.
