  • Southern Oregon hotel and innkeepers collectively showed year-over-year improvements in February and fared better than the state as a whole.
    Figures compiled by Smith Travel Research of Hendersonville, Tenn., showed year-over-year improvements in occupancy (5.3 percent), room rates (2.7 percent), revenue per available room (8.2 percent), demand (4.5 percent) and revenue, which grew 7.4 percent to $7.14 million for the month.
    The only category where the region declined was in room supply, which slipped 0.8 percent primarily on the removal of dozens of former Red Lion hotel rooms in Medford before it transitioned into the Inn at the Commons.
    The only category where the state as a whole outshined Southern Oregon was in room rates. Local rates averaged $72.21, compared to $92.59 statewide. The high end for room rates was in Portland at $105.86, while the low end was $67.06 in Eastern Oregon.
