HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—The Canadian hotel industry recorded positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the week of 8-14 April 2018, according to data from STR.

• Average daily rate (ADR): +5.2% to CAD146.11
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +17.2% to CAD91.25

STR analysts note performance growth was boosted by a favorable comparison with the week of Easter in 2017.

Among the provinces and territories, Manitoba reported the largest rise in RevPAR (+55.8% to CAD98.53), due primarily to the largest increase in occupancy (+40.6% to 77.1%).
