• Occupancy: -4.9% to 48.5%
• Average daily rate (ADR): -2.6% to US$127.92
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -7.4% to US$62.00

New Orleans, Louisiana, saw the second-steepest decline in RevPAR (-20.9% to US$69.80), due primarily to the only other double-digit drop in occupancy (-12.7% to 56.4%).
