The Canadian hotel industry recorded positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 31 December 2017 to 6 January 2018, according to data from STR.

  • Average daily rate (ADR): +13.2% to CAD154.26

Opposite of the prior week, performance growth was boosted by a comparison with the week that did not include New Year’s Eve in 2016.

Among the provinces and territories, Nova Scotia reported the largest increase in RevPAR (+47.2% to CAD47.59), due primarily to the largest increase in occupancy (+32.9% to 37.4%).

British Columbia posted the largest increase in ADR (+17.2% to CAD207.41), that coupled with the second-highest lift in occupancy (+15.6% to 49.1%), resulted in the second-largest jump in RevPAR (+35.5% to CAD101.79).

Overall, each of the 11 reporting provinces and territories reported RevPAR growth.
