• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -2.9% to US$98.08

Dallas, Texas, experienced the highest rise in occupancy (+1.3% to 73.3%).
New Orleans, Louisiana, saw the steepest decline in RevPAR (-17.1% to US$79.19), due primarily to the only double-digit drop in occupancy (-20.3% to 57.8%). The most significant performance declines in the market came at the end of the week as Tropical Storm Barry made landfall.
Houston, Texas, reported the largest decrease in ADR (-9.4% to US$96.16).
