From HotelNewsNow.com: STR: US hotel results for week ending 10 August
The U.S. hotel industry reported mostly negative year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 4-10 August 2019, according to data from STR.The following graph shows the seasonal pattern for the hotel occupancy rate using the four week average.
In comparison with the week of 5-11 August 2018, the industry recorded the following:
• Occupancy: -1.4% to 74.1%
• Average daily rate (ADR): +0.4% to US$133.36
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -1.0% at US$98.88

The red line is for 2019, dash light blue is 2018 (record year), blue is the median, and black is for 2009 (the worst year probably since the Great Depression for hotels).
Occupancy has been solid in 2019, close to-date compared to the previous 4 years - but has been a little soft YoY in recent weeks.
Seasonally, the occupancy rate will now start to decline as the peak summer travel season ends.
