Hotels saw an overall occupancy drop of 3.6 percent to 54.1 percent during the week, and the average daily rate was down 4.4 percent to $94.45.

The New York City market posted the largest occupancy increase — 22.3 percent — of all the top 25 markets surveyed, reaching 87 percent. It also had the largest RevPAR increase, up 26.8 percent to $179.61. Miami-Hialeah and New York City were two of the three top markets to see rises in average daily rates, up 9 percent and 3.7 percent, respectively. TRD
