You would think that they would be tied to RevPAR, but in reviewing the ADR and RevPAR of many of the US properties, it appears that the move is tied more to the ADR. They also make some changes for appearance sake within certain cities or following major renovations with the expectations of considerably better performance. But in general, the properties line up in categories based on the previous year's ADR. Certain highly seasonal markets like ski or beach destinations buck the trend as their ADRs range so wildly throughout the year.
