Due to constricted business travel during the 4th of July, the U.S. hotel performance had a weak start to Q3 2023. Thereafter, the U.S. hotel performance stayed pretty much stable. However, the national hotel performance gathered momentum in mid-September due to an increase in business and leisure travel.

Occupancy was reported at 69.9% at the start of Q3 2023, which decreased to 66.70% at the end of Q3 2023. ADR was $156.27 at the beginning of Q3 2023, which increased slightly to $157.89 at the end of Q3 2023. RevPAR was $109.18 at the start of Q3 2023, which decreased to $105.31 at the end of Q3 2023.

Outlook

Labor shortages, rising cost of debt, continued supply chain constraints, and increased inflation of operating costs are challenging the U.S. lodging sector. In addition to the need to replenish FF&E reserve accounts, many owners are being forced to execute deferred capital expenditure refurbishments to comply with brand-mandated property improvement plans (PIP). On the flip side, the nation’s net lodging supply growth remains well below the long-term average. Although credit markets are volatile, there is no shortage of available financing for hotel assets as institutional and private investment funds are backfilling a void left by banks. Knowledgeable sector investors who understand market dynamics and can leverage relationships with multiple types of capital partners can secure investment funds regardless of market conditions in the upcoming 2-3 quarters.

 

The business outlook for US hotels remains strong for the remainder of 2023, thanks to an uptick in business travel and a healthy preference among business and leisure travelers to stay in hotels. As per a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), 68% of Americans whose jobs involve travel said they were likely to travel overnight for business during the last three months of 2023, up from 59% in 2022. Hotels are the top lodging choice for 81% of business travelers surveyed.
