HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. — The Canadian hotel industry recorded positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of November 25 to December 1, according to data from STR.
In year-over-year comparison, the industry reported a 2.2-per-cent increase in occupancy to 62.8 per cent, 2.4-per-cent growth in Average Daily Rate (ADR) to $146.86 and a 4.6-per-cent increase in Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) to $92.27.
Manitoba registered the largest jump in RevPAR (up 12.9 per cent), due primarily to the second-highest rise in occupancy (up 8.2 per cent). In all, seven provinces and territories saw RevPAR growth.
The Northwest Territories reported the largest lift in ADR (an 8.5-per-cent increase), while Alberta experienced the highest increase in occupancy (up 8.8 per cent).
Newfoundland and Labrador saw the only double-digit decrease in RevPAR (falling 18.2 per cent) because of the steepest declines in occupancy and ADR, which fell 9.3 per cent and 9.9 per cent, respectively.
