HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The U.S. hotel industry reported flat occupancy and slightly higher rates year over year during the week of 14-20 May 2017, according to data from STR.

In comparison with the week of 15-21 May 2016, the industry recorded the following in the three key performance metrics:

  • Average daily rate (ADR): +1.5% to US$127.91

STR analysts note that occupancy for the week was pulled down due to comparison with a non-Mother’s Day Sunday in 2016.

Growth in St. Louis was driven primarily by the week’s largest increase in ADR (+9.9% to US$119.51).
