HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The U.S. hotel industry reported mixed year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 7-13 October 2018, according to data from STR.

In comparison with the week of 8-14 October 2017, the industry recorded the following:

• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +0.8% to US$95.42

Among the Top 25 Markets, New Orleans, Louisiana, registered the largest increase in RevPAR (+21.5% to US$135.87), driven by a double-digit rise in occupancy (+11.3% to 80.0%) and the largest jump in ADR (+9.1% to US$169.91).

Nashville, Tennessee, posted the third-largest increase in RevPAR (+11.9% to US$145.70), due primarily to the second-largest lift in ADR (+6.2% to US$168.76).

Overall, 14 of the Top 25 Markets reported growth in RevPAR.
