“The outlook for occupancy and ADR continues to be positive across both group and transient segments,” said Tim Hart, executive vice president, business intelligence, TravelClick. “Group demand pace for the balance of 2013 has not kept up with last year, but transient demand is taking up the slack and driving strong performance heading into the summer months.” When looking at the next 12 months (May 2013 - April 2014), overall committed occupancy is up 3.3 percent versus this time last year, and ADR is up 3.6 percent based on reservations currently on the books. Transient bookings are up 5.8 percent year-over-year and ADR is up 3.9 percent. The transient leisure segment is particularly strong, with occupancy increases of 4.6 percent and an ADR increase of 4.8 percent, compared to last year. The transient business segment is experiencing strong occupancy growth, up 7.0 percent, and more moderate ADR growth, up 2.9 percent year-over-year. The group segment is showing an occupancy increase of 1.7 percent and an ADR gain of 3.1 percent compared to this time last year. Get the full story at TravelClick
