The latest 2019 STR forecast for average daily rate growth now stands at 2.4%. We anticipate this to be a very slight decline from 2018 when we expect the full-year ADR change to be at 2.6%. (STR is the parent company of Hotel News Now.) This growth rate is slightly higher than it was in 2017 but well below the growth rates since 2011. In fact, between 2011 and 2016, ADR always grew at, around or well above 3%. Chart one shows that it seems that ADR change has stabilized around 2.5% or so and is certainly not expected to strongly accelerate in the near future. Get the full story at HNN
