As expected due to the Halloween calendar shift, U.S. hotel performance came in lower than the previous week and showed weakened comparisons to 2019, according to STR‘s latest data through Nov. 5.

Oct. 30 through Nov. 5, 2022 (percentage change from comparable week in 2019*):

Occupancy: 62.4% (-9.2%)
• Average daily rate (ADR): $147.48 (+11.4%)
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): $91.99 (+1.1%)

While none of the Top 25 Markets showed an occupancy increase over 2019, Tampa came closest to its pre-pandemic comparable (-1.0% to 72.4%). …

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