TravelClick’s October 2011 North American Hospitality Review indicates the hotel industry is continuing to show strong growth in the business, leisure and group travel segments. The North American Hospitality Review is based on actual hotel bookings for the period October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2012. For the next twelve months, committed occupancy is up 4.8 percent year-over-year, average daily rate (ADR) is up 4.0 percent, and revenue per available room (RevPAR), a top-line indicator, is tracking ahead by 6.5 percent. “While there is much uncertainty regarding where the overall economy is headed, hotel industry performance over the remainder of 2011 and heading into 2012 continues to look strong,” said Tim Hart, executive vice president, business intelligence, TravelClick. “TravelClick’s forward-looking demand data reveals that RevPAR for the fourth quarter is tracking ahead of last year by 6.2%, based on reservations on the books. This improving performance is driven by both stronger occupancy and improved ADR.” Get the full story at TravelClick
