Lifted by Labor Day weekend, Hurricane Ida evacuations and the return of college football, US hotel performance increased slightly from the previous week, according to STR’s latest data. The results for the week of Aug. 29 through Sept. 4 (including the percentage change from the comparable week in 2019) were:

• Occupancy: 61.3% (up 0.7%)
• Average daily rate (ADR): $132.94 (up 9.4%)
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): $81.54 (up 10.1%)

Comparisons with 2019 were higher due in part to a low-performing week that year. Among the Top 25 Markets as categorized by STR, Houston recorded the highest occupancy and RevPAR increases over 2019 (up 50.5% to 76.6% and 77.1% to $77.82, respectively). Miami reported the largest ADR increase over 2019 (up 42.4% to $179.36). The largest RevPAR deficits were in San Francisco/San Mateo (down 51.9% to $86.93) and Oahu (down 38.3% to $117.88).
