HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The U.S. hotel industry reported positive results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 23-29 April 2017, according to data from STR.

In comparison with the week of 24-30 April 2016, the industry reported the following:

  • Average daily rate (ADR): +5.1% to US$127.50
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +8.9% to US$89.65

STR analysts attribute the level of performance growth to a comparison with Passover week last year.

Among the Top 25 Markets, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-New Jersey, saw the largest year-over-year increase in RevPAR (+28.7% to US$132.05). Growth was driven primarily by the week’s largest lift in ADR (+20.1% to US$161.06). Occupancy in the market rose 7.1% to 82.0%.
