Hotels: Occupancy Rate Down 15% Compared to Same Week in 2019

Reflecting post-holiday seasonality, U.S. hotel performance fell from the previous week, according to STR‘s latest data through Jan. 8.

Jan. 2-8, 2022 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019*):

Occupancy: 45.4% (-14.9%)
• Average daily rate (ADR): $119.92 (-4.8%)
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): $54.47 (-19.0%)

Occupancy fell week over week because of a slowdown in leisure demand and a continued absence of business travel due to a Saturday holiday. While ADR also dropped from an all-time high the previous week, the metric came in at roughly 95% of the 2019 comparable. …

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

The 4-week average of the occupancy rate will increase seasonally over the next few months.
