The United States Experiencing Demand in the Hotel Industry

Despite worries of recession, bank failures, and a liquidity crisis affecting the macro economy, US hotels continue to outperform expectations. In Q1 2023, US hotels exceeded Q1 2019 (pre-pandemic) RevPAR levels by 13%, based on data from STR. Room rates continue to be the primary driver in this performance recovery.

While occupancy in Q1 2023 was still down 2.1 points from the same period in 2019, ADR increased 17%. Leisure travel continues to be strong, even though growth levels are slowing. Individual business travel and group business slowly re-emerged, contributing more significantly to future growth expectations.

According to the industry experts' expectations, the annual occupancy for US hotels in the year 2023 increased slightly less than in the November 2022 outlook, increasing to 63.4%. With slowing growth in occupancies for the balance of this year, now expect average daily room rates to increase 4.1% for the year, with resultant RevPAR up 5.5%. It is approximately 114% of pre-pandemic levels on a nominal dollar basis.

Demand growth from individual business travel and groups is expected to offset a softening in leisure demand, with outbound international leisure travel outpacing inbound, given the relative strength of the dollar. With flattening occupancy levels in 2024, growth is expected to come almost entirely from ADR, with an expected year-over-year increase in RevPAR of 3.5%. It is approximately 118% of pre-pandemic levels.
