“While hotels are experiencing RevPAR growth overall – ADR will be the main source of growth for hotels in the third quarter of 2013. We expect this ADR–led growth to continue over the remainder of 2013 heading into 2014, particularly given the low rate of occupancy growth in the group segment,” said Tim Hart, executive vice president, business intelligence, TravelClick. When looking at the next 12 months (August 2013 - July 2014), overall committed occupancy* is up 2.2 percent versus the same time last year. ADR is up 3.7 percent based on reservations currently on the books. Transient bookings – made up of individual business and leisure travelers – are up 5.3 percent year-over-year and ADR for this segment is up 4.7 percent. The transient leisure segment is showing occupancy gains of 4.9 percent and ADR gains of 4.9 percent. The transient business segment is showing occupancy gains of 5.5 percent and a 4.4 percent rise in ADR. The group segment is relatively flat, experiencing an occupancy increase of 1.0 percent and an ADR gain of 1.3 percent compared to the same time last year. Get the full story at TravelClick
