“The industry’s upward momentum continued in the first three months of 2011 with the strongest quarterly RevPAR growth since first-quarter 2006,” said Bobby Bowers, senior VP at STR. “Supply growth continued its downward trajectory, demand growth remained healthy and ADR accounted for a greater percentage of the quarter’s RevPAR increase. This marks the industry’s fourth consecutive quarterly RevPAR gain, and we expect positive news will continue as 2011 unfolds.” Among the Top 25 Markets, Detroit, Michigan, was the only market to report a double-digit occupancy increase, rising 13.7 percent to 54.0 percent.
