Canadian Hotel Occupancy Down 2.7 Per Cent

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. — The Canadian hotel industry reported negative year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of August 11 to 17, according to data from STR.

In a year-over-year comparison, the industry reported a 2.7-per-cent decrease in occupancy to 80.1 per cent, a 1.1-per-cent dip in Average Daily Rate (ADR) to $182.70 and a 3.8-per-cent drop in Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) to $146.38.

Newfoundland and Labrador saw the only double-digit increases in occupancy and RevPAR — up 17.2 per cent and 19.5 per cent respectively. New Brunswick posted the largest lift in ADR (up 4.8 per cent), which resulted in the second-highest jump in RevPAR (a 4.5-per-cent increase).

Nova Scotia registered the only double-digit decrease in RevPAR — falling 11 per cent to $147.86 — due primarily to the steepest drop in ADR (an eight-per-cent drop to $163.47). Saskatchewan experienced the largest decline in occupancy, with a 7.1-per-cent decrease to 59 per cent.

British Columbia reported the second-largest decreases in ADR and RevPAR, which fell 4.2 per cent and 8.3 per cent respectively.
