Increase in Average Hotel Daily Rate Now Expected to Drive 2022 RevPAR Above 2019 Levels


PwC’s hospitality and leisure sectors practice recently came out with its May 2022 Hospitality Directions USA report, which indicates that the US hotel RevPAR is expected to exceed 2019 levels.

Their revised outlook for 2022 indicates that:

  • Continued demand recovery, as the individual business traveler and groups slowly return, resulting in occupancy of As a result, RevPAR experiences strong growth – up 63.1%.
  • Average daily rate continues to strengthen as all segments of demand see growth accelerate – up 16.9%
  • As a result, RevPAR experiences strong growth – up 28.1%

In 2023, PcW expects demand growth from individual business travelers and groups
to more than offset a potential softening in leisure demand (as international
leisure travel continues to recover and people who took vacations domestically
over the past two years, venture abroad). Growth in both occupancy and ADR is
expected, with a year-over-year rebound in RevPAR of 6.6 percent, which is
approximately 114% of pre-pandemic levels.
