HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. — The Canadian hotel industry recorded mixed year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of August 12 to 18, according to data from STR.

In year-over-year comparison, the industry reported a 0.7-per-cent drop in occupancy to 82.5 per cent, a 2.7-per-cent increase in Average Daily Rate (ADR) to $182.34 and a two-per-cent increase in Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) to $150.42.

British Colombia reported the largest year-over-year increase in RevPAR for the week (up 9.9 per cent to $223), due to the second-highest jump in ADR (a 11.1-per-cent increase to $245.09). Saskatchewan saw the highest rise in occupancy, climbing 4.2 per cent to 63.4 per cent.

The Northwest Territories posted the largest lift in ADR (up 15.1 per cent to $166.47) but the steepest decline in occupancy (down 20.9 per cent to 68 per cent). This combination resulted in the second-largest drop in RevPAR (a 8.9-per-cent decrease to $113.22).

Newfoundland and Labrador registered the largest decreases in ADR and RevPAR — down 9.6 per cent and 23 per cent respectively — as well as the only other double-digit drop in occupancy (down 14.8 per cent to 71.1 per cent). Quebec reported the third-largest decreases in occupancy and RevPAR, which fell 4.1 per cent and 6.2 per cent respectively.
