HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The U.S. hotel industry reported positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 17-23 November 2019, according to data from STR.
In comparison with the week of 18-24 November 2018, the industry recorded the following:

• Average daily rate (ADR): +10.8% to US$124.71
