Major public hotel companies recently released their year-end 2018 performance data. Of the 61 brands that report RevPAR statistics, most enjoyed an extended period of high occupancy levels and modest rate growth in 2018.
Overall, the pulse of each area within the Southeast region was positive, with some expecting some softening in occupancy this year, which mirrors our overall national sentiment. ADR growth should keep overall RevPAR change in the positive column.
