As expected on the negative side of a holiday calendar shift, U.S. hotel performance came in lower than the previous week, according to STR’s latest data through July 9.

July 3-9 2022 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019*):

o Occupancy: 63.3% (-14.5%)
o Average daily rate (ADR): $153.71 (+15.7%)
o Revenue per available room (RevPAR): $97.37 (-1.1%)

Whereas the previous week’s percentage changes were elevated on the favorable side of the calendar shift, the most recent week was skewed downward due to a comparison with a non-holiday week in 2019. After two consecutive weeks of lower demand around the Fourth of July holiday, the metrics are expected to strengthen for the remaining weeks of July.

*Due to the pandemic impact, STR is measuring recovery against comparable time periods from 2019.
