U.S. hotel occupancy increased from the previous week, but performance comparisons with 2019 were lower, according to STR‘s latest data through 4 December.

28 November through 4 December 2021 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019*):

  • Occupancy: 54.8% (-8.8%)
  • Average daily rate (ADR): US$127.92 (-0.5%)
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): US$70.08 (-9.2%)

While none of the Top 25 Markets recorded an occupancy increase over 2019, Los Angeles matched its 2019 comparable (70.0%).

San Francisco/San Mateo experienced the steepest occupancy decline from 2019 (-37.3% to 48.4%).

Miami, lifted by Art Basel, reported the largest ADR increase when compared with 2019 (+32.9% to US$373.71).

The largest RevPAR deficits were in San Francisco/San Mateo (-54.9% to US$77.57) and Washington, D.C. (-38.2% to US$60.39).

*Due to the steep, pandemic-driven performance declines of 2020, STR is measuring recovery against comparable time periods from 2019.
