STR and Tourism Economics lifted year-over-year growth projections for average daily rate (ADR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) in the final U.S. hotel forecast revision of 2023.
For 2023, growth in RevPAR was raised by 0.3 percentage points, due to a 0.6ppt lift in ADR growth. Recent RevPAR trends demonstrate that rate continues to be the primary driver of performance. Occupancy was downgraded slightly (by 0.2ppts). For 2024, the growth projections for each of the key performance metrics remained flat from the previous forecast due to the above long-term average trends beginning to stabilize.
