U.S. Hotel Occupancy Reaches Highest Level Since October 2019

U.S. weekly hotel occupancy reached its highest level since October 2019, according to STR‘s latest data through 17 July.

11-17 July 2021 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019*):

  • Occupancy: 71.0% (-8.7%)
  • Average daily rate (ADR): US$139.19 (+1.8%)
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): US$98.87 (-7.1%)

Despite a four-point, week-over-week improvement in occupancy, ADR dipped slightly from the all-time high achieved the previous week.

Among the Top 25 Markets, New Orleans saw the highest occupancy increase over 2019 (+5.8% to 59.5%).

San Francisco/San Mateo experienced the steepest decline in occupancy when compared with 2019 (-36.6% to 56.3%).

Miami reported the largest ADR increase over 2019 (+32.4% to US$208.13), while Tampa registered the highest RevPAR increase (+29.2% to US$119.54).

The largest RevPAR drops were in San Francisco/San Mateo (-55.6% to US$94.29) and Boston (-47.9% to US$102.05).

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