ATLANTA-Jameson Inns Inc., a 120-unit company that caters largely to business travelers in the Southeast, is reporting revenue per available room of $33.55 in August, a four-cent increase from August 2002. Occupancy among all brands was 55.5%, up from 54.4% at this time last year.

The company cites data from Smith Travel Research of Hendersonville, TN that shows all Jameson hotels in the economy category having REVpar ranging from flat to an increase of 2%. That’s the same projection Smith Travel makes for the total US Lodging industry for August.

The Signature Inns division of Jameson Inns Inc. posted 52.7% occupancy in August, fractionally up from 52.2% in the same period last year. The Jameson Inns brand showed occupancy of 57% versus 55.5% in August 2002.

The average daily rate decreased $1.22 for the month while occupancy increased 1.1 points. Signature Inns offered rates of $63.12 per night versus $66.47 last year. The Jameson Inns brand had an average daily rate of $49.11 compared to $59.17 in August 2002. The combined brands’ average daily rate was $60.43 this year versus $61.65 last year.

Jameson Inns Inc. plans to shed its REIT status in 2004, a maneuver that would allow the locally based company to buy its leasing arm, Kitchin Hospitality LLC, for $1.3 million, as GlobeSt.com previously reported.
