Oklahoma led the region in occupancy growth as the addition of new rooms here did not outpace an increase of 7.6 percent in room nights during the last four quarters. As a result, occupancy in the state rose an impressive 200 basis points year-over-year to 62.5 percent.

Missouri, though, maintained the highest occupancy rate in June at 73.4 percent, up 40 basis points year-over-year. The Kansas City metropolitan area posted an increase of 200 basis points in its occupancy rate during this time, with the rate rising to 78.1 percent.

St. Louis, though, did see a drop in occupancy rates, with its rate falling 50 basis points during the last 12 months to 76.8 percent.

Rooms in the Central Midwest region are getting more expensive, with Marcus & Millichap reporting that the average daily room rate rose 2.8 percent to $94.07 during the last 12 months.
