HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee — The Canadian hotel industry recorded mostly negative year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 22-28 September 2019, according to data from STR.


In comparison with the week of 23-29 September 2018, the industry reported the following:

  • Occupancy: -4.3% to 76.8%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): +0.3% to CAD177.22
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -4.0% to CAD136.16

Among the provinces and territories, British Columbia posted the largest increase in RevPAR (+7.1% to CAD176.96), due to the largest lift in ADR (+8.0% to CAD216.88).

Nova Scotia experienced the only rise in occupancy (+0.4% to 87.9%).

Newfoundland and Labrador saw one of the steepest declines in RevPAR (-15.3% to CAD108.81), largely because of the largest drop in ADR (-8.9% to CAD145.15).

Alberta matched for the largest decrease in RevPAR (-15.3% to CAD97.29), due mostly to the steepest decline in occupancy (-10.6% to 61.9%).
