STR analysts attribute significant performance declines to comparison of Thanksgiving week in 2019 against the week that followed the holiday in 2018.
Boston, Massachusetts, registered the largest decrease in RevPAR (-47.5% to US$65.18), due primarily to the second-steepest drop in occupancy (-29.7% to 50.7%).

Chicago, Illinois, reported the largest decline in ADR (-26.6% to US$111.73) and the second-largest decrease in RevPAR (-44.6% to US$56.04).
Overall, 21 of the Top 25 Markets reported a RevPAR decrease.
Oahu Island, Hawaii, recorded the highest jump in RevPAR (+21.1% to US$186.36), driven by the only double-digit lift in ADR (+15.4% to US$238.80).
