TravelClick recently released its November 2011 North American Hospitality Review and it’s looking like H-Town is in for a bright 2012. All travel segments—business, leisure and group business travel—are seeing gains in demand and increased room rates all over the U.S. in the next 12 months, though a handful of U.S. destinations (including our beloved Houston) are coming out on top.
As one of the “Top Five Strongest U.S. Travel Markets,” H-Town will see 9.7% committed occupancy gains, 2.6% higher reserved average daily rates (ADR) and a 9.5% increase for reserved revenue per available room (RevPAR). Other top markets for 2012 include Charlotte, Detroit, Indianapolis and Seattle.
Destinations making the Top Five Weakest U.S. Travel Markets include Honolulu, Minneapolis St. Paul, Denver, Phoenix and our neighbors to the north—Dallas.
