0

U.S. hotel performance came in lower than the previous week but showed improved comparisons to 2019 in part because of a favorable calendar shift, according to STR‘s latest data through Dec. 17.

Dec. 11-17, 2022 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019*):

• Occupancy: 54.5% (+9.2%)
• Average daily rate (ADR): $135.08 (+23.7%)
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): $73.65 (+35.1%)

The corresponding week in 2019 ended on 21 December, which brought performance down lower for that period.

*Due to the pandemic impact, STR is measuring recovery against comparable time periods from 2019.
emphasis addedThe following graph shows the seasonal pattern for the hotel occupancy rate using the four-week average.

The red line is for 2022, black is 2020, blue is the median, and dashed light blue is for 2021.  Dashed purple is 2019 (STR is comparing to a strong year for hotels).

The 4-week average of the occupancy rate is above the median rate for the previous 20 years (Blue) and close to 2019 levels.

Note: Y-axis doesn’t start at zero to better show the seasonal change.
The 4-week average of the occupancy rate will decline through the New Year and then start increasing.
