During the first week of April, San Diego hotels experienced fluctuations in occupancy growth while average daily rates remained on an upward trend. Occupancy rates ranged from 73 percent in the I-15 Corridor to nearly 89 percent in Mission Valley. While half of the regions declined in occupancy compared to the same week in 2018, several regions experienced growth – the highest being 6.5 percent in Mission Valley and 4.6 percent in UTC. Average daily rates ranged from $113 in Escondido to $255 in La Jolla. All regions but one experienced growth in ADR, with properties Downtown leading at 22.3 percent, followed by the I-15 Corridor at 12.7 percent over last year. Much of this growth may be due to two large conventions that were in town during this week – the National Indian Gaming Association from April 2-4, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics from April 3-7.
