The U.S. hotel industry reported positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 26 November through 2 December 2017, according to data from STR.

In comparison with the week of 27 November through 3 December 2016, the industry recorded the following:

• Occupancy: +1.3% to 56.6%
• Average daily rate (ADR): +0.2% to US$117.82
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +1.5% to US$66.71

Among the Top 25 Markets, Houston, Texas, reported the largest increase in RevPAR (+33.1% to US$74.18), due primarily to the highest rise in occupancy (+25.5% to 68.6%). Performance in the market continues to be boosted by post-Hurricane Harvey demand.

Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida, posted the highest lift in ADR (+7.9% to US$113.10).

Orlando, Florida, experienced the second-highest increases in occupancy (+9.6% to 72.2%) and RevPAR (+15.7% to US$83.65).

Overall, five of the Top 25 Markets reported double-digit growth in RevPAR.

Mostly due to a calendar shift around Art Basel, Miami/Hialeah, Florida, reported the steepest declines in ADR (-31.4% to US$175.86) and RevPAR (-34.6% to US$132.52).

San Diego, California, saw the second-largest decrease in RevPAR (-20.9% to US$80.13), due primarily to the second-largest decrease in ADR (-17.6% to US$129.95).

Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota-Wisconsin, experienced the largest decrease in occupancy (-8.7% to 56.7%).
