Hotel News Now each week features a news roundup from a different region of the world. Today’s review covers the Americas. RevPAR growth reaches 100-month mark in JuneThe current revenue-per-available-room recovery began in March 2010, and since then RevPAR for the U.S. hotel industry has stayed afloat without interruption for 100 months. RevPAR increased from $56.80 to $98.85 in June 2018, writes Jan Freitag, SVP of lodging insights at STR, parent company of HNN. “Looking back at this extraordinary run in increasing hotel prices and room demand proves that the industry was and is very resilient to outside shocks. While the immediate demand impact on travel and tourism by an outside shock is very impactful, recovery is always imminent and can then even spark a long up-cycle just as the one we are living in now,” Freitag writes.
