U.S. hotel results for week ending 13 June, According to STR Report

HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—U.S. hotel performance data ending with 13 June showed another small rise from previous weeks and less severe year-over-year declines, according to STR.

7-13 June 2020 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019):

  • Occupancy: 41.7% (-43.4%)
  • Average daily rate (ADR): US$89.09 (-33.9%)
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): US$37.15 (-62.6%)

“Powered by the slow and steady rise in weekly demand, the industry clawed its way above 40% occupancy,” said Alison Hoyt, STR’s senior director, consulting & analytics. “That was still down substantially from the comparable week last year (73.6%) but an obvious improvement from the country’s low point in mid-April. As we have noted, the drive-to destinations with access to beaches, mountains and parks continue to lead the early leisure recovery. With more consistent demand, we’re beginning to see more pricing confidence in those areas as well.”
