HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. — The Canadian hotel industry recorded positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of Dec. 31, 2017 to Jan. 6, 2018, according to data from STR.
Year-over-year, occupancy rose 9.8 per cent to 43.7 per cent; Average Daily Rate (ADR) grew 13.2 per cent to $154.26; and Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) jumped 24.3 per cent to $67.44.
Nova Scotia reported the largest increase in RevPAR (up 47.2 per cent to $47.59), due primarily to the largest increase in occupancy (a 32.9-per-cent jump to 37.4 per cent). British Columbia posted the largest increase in ADR (up 17.2 per cent to $207.41), which, coupled with the second-highest lift in occupancy (a 15.6-per-cent increase to 49.1 per cent), resulted in the second-largest jump in RevPAR (up 35.5 per cent to $101.79).
