Average daily rates, occupancy, and revenue per available room held steady or grew year-to-date compared with the same period in 2017, research from CBRE Hotels in Los Angeles shows.

Countywide, ADR and RevPAR each rose 4%, to $191 and $152, respectively; occupancy was roughly unchanged at 79.5%. Hotel industry watchers consider 80% occupancy as effectively full.

CBRE also charted numbers in seven OC submarkets: Anaheim, Costa Mesa, the Airport area, North OC, South OC, Newport Beach, and Huntington Beach.


• Anaheim had the highest percentage increase in ADR and RevPAR at 6% and 7.4%, respectively

• Newport Beach had the highest-dollar ADR and RevPAR at $290 and $237

• North OC had the lowest-dollar ADR and RevPAR at $126 and $99

• Anaheim had the highest occupancy, 83%, and Huntington Beach had the lowest—70%

• But Huntington Beach had the biggest percentage point increase in occupancy—3%

• South OC had the biggest percentage point decrease in occupancy—5%, to 73%

CBRE’s May report included a look at the growth and performance of extended-stay hotels in the U.S., a sector that has been strong for hospitality operators in recent years.
