Hotel rates and bookings are all over the map this summer -- and will likely remain so for the rest of the year -- according to hotel consultancy TravelClick, which last week published the results of its July 2017 North American Hospitality Review (NAHR).
According to TravelClick, occupancy across all hotel segments is down 0.8 percent year-over-year for the third quarter of 2017, while average daily rates (ADR) are up 0.1 percent. Revenue per available room (RevPAR), meanwhile, declined 0.7 percent.
TravelClick, a global provider of innovative, cloud-based and data-driven solutions for hotels, announced a re-launch of the Company’s industry-leading Demand360® product with the powerfully reimagined Demand360 Quick View.
This next-generation platform enables hoteliers to focus on driving outcomes by identifying the most actionable data. With a quick glance, hoteliers can identify their biggest areas for opportunity and spend their time on taking action rather than sorting through data.
