WASHINGTON 22 November 2023 – Following seasonal patterns, Canada’s hotel performance fell month over month, but continued a stretch of year-over-year growth, according to CoStar’s October 2023 data. CoStar is a leading provider of online real estate marketplaces, information and analytics in the property markets.

October 2023 (percentage change from October 2022):

Occupancy: 68.1% (+2.2%)

Average daily rate (ADR): CAD196.25 (+8.8%)

Revenue per available room (RevPAR): CAD133.57 (+11.2%)

“Following three months of single-digit, year-over-year growth, RevPAR grew double-digits for the first time since June,” said Laura Baxter, CoStar Group’s director of hospitality analytics for Canada.

“Full-service and urban hotels performed particularly well, with weekday occupancy in downtown Vancouver exceeding 2019 levels for the first time since March. There was also growth in group demand compared to the last few months, but despite improvements, the segment remains below average levels. The silver lining is group rates, which are up 26% compared to 2019, were stronger than the transient rate index for the first time.

“Higher occupancy this year has driven revenue across all departments within full-service hotels. But higher occupancy and elevated costs are eroding margins achieved last year when leaner hotel operating models were combined with strong ADR growth. This year, inflated costs are lowering margins, particularly undistributed expenses and higher wages.”

Among the provinces and territories, Nova Scotia recorded the highest October occupancy level (75.0%), which was 6.3% below 2022.

Among the major markets, Vancouver saw the highest occupancy (77.7%), which was 0.1% ahead of October 2022.

The lowest occupancy among provinces was reported in Prince Edward Island (56.0%), down 25.8% against 2022. At the market level, the lowest occupancy was reported in Edmonton (+10.1% to 59.5%).

“Our just-released forecast for 2023 was upgraded once again as rate growth surpassed expectations,” said Baxter. “We have also lifted ADR projections slightly for 2024, at 1.8%, while occupancy growth is forecasted to be more marginal at 0.4%. This is despite a 0.4% GDP contraction expected to occur as people continue to prioritize travel against the backdrop of muted hotel inventory growth.”

VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 22, 2023 /CNW/ - The Macallan is collaborating with Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler to unveil The Library by The Macallan, an unparalleled experience within the alpine property's library space. From December 15th, 2023, to March 31st, 2024, The Macallan will offer bespoke, fireside cocktails and elevated bar snacks in an atmosphere steeped in warmth and timeless elegance.

The Library by The Macallan is inspired by the refined charm of a classic library and the understated sophistication of a whisky salon, setting the tone for a unique, mountain-side experience where connoisseurs and novices alike will savour the exquisite craftsmanship for which The Macallan is renowned.
