During the week of 23-29 October, the U.S. hotel industry saw occupancy increase 8.1% to 67.2%, while ADR rose 4.3% to $125.98 and RevPAR jumped 12.7% to $84.62.

HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The U.S. hotel industry reported positive results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 23-29 October 2016, according to data from STR.

In year-over-year comparisons, the industry’s occupancy increased 8.1% to 67.2%. Average daily rate (ADR) rose 4.3% to US$125.98. Revenue per available room (RevPAR) grew 12.7% to US$84.62.

STR analysts cite a positive impact on the week’s results due to a Halloween calendar shift. With the holiday on a Monday as opposed to a Saturday (2015), there was greater demand (year over year) in the Group and Transient segments.

Among the Top 25 Markets, World Series co-host Chicago, Illinois, posted the largest year-over-year increases in ADR (+16.3% to US$171.39) and RevPAR (+36.3% to US$134.79). Occupancy in the market rose 17.1% to 78.6%.

Four additional markets saw a RevPAR increase of 20.0% or more: New Orleans, Louisiana (+30.6% to US$152.96); Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Virginia (+27.5% to US$50.87); Denver, Colorado (+20.6% to US$102.33); and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-New Jersey (+20.1% to US$114.50).
