The U.S. hotel industry reported mostly negative year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 30 July through 5 August 2017, according to data from STR.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-New Jersey, reported the week’s steepest decline in RevPAR (-25.0% to US$90.31), due mostly to the only double-digit decrease in ADR (-16.0% to US$123.35).

St. Louis, Missouri-Illinois, reported the second-largest drop in RevPAR (-19.2% to US$71.68), which was primarily a result of the week’s largest decrease in occupancy (-14.7% to 69.3%).
