The Canadian hotel industry recorded negative year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 14-20 April 2019, according to data from STR.

In comparison with the week of 15-21 April 2018, the industry reported the following:

  • Occupancy: -11.6% to 57.6%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): -0.7% to CAD147.97
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -12.3% to CAD85.28

Among the provinces and territories, British Columbia registered the only increase in RevPAR (+10.0% to CAD117.82), due primarily to the only double-digit lift in ADR (+11.3% to CAD173.18). 

Prince Edward Island posted the only other rise in ADR (+3.1% to CAD123.95).

None of the provinces or territories experienced a rise in occupancy.
