Hotel operators and observers often employ industry-wide averages as key points of comparison and analysis for room rates, occupancy, and revenues. The use of simple averages,however, can be misleading if one does not take into account the possibility that a mean will bepulled in one direction or another by extreme values. This analysis of three industry averagesshows that those averages are, indeed, subject to distortion, or skew. The analysis, whichexamines figures for virtually all brand-name hotels in the United States, determined that themeans for average daily rate (ADR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) are skewed in apositive direction by hotels with extremely high rates. On the other hand, occupancy is skewed ina negative direction by a group of hotels with inordinately low occupancy levels.Many of the extreme values are found in the top-25 markets, which have hotels withinordinately high ADRs. Analysis of those markets shows that, once again, the overall statisticsare distorted by a relatively small set of hotels with exceptional ADRs and occupancies.However, each of the top markets shows a distinctive rate and occupancy pattern.The pattern of skewed operating statistics carries over into individual lodging segments.The greatest distortions arise in the luxury and upscale segments, while economy and budgethotels record more consistent (normally distributed) statistics.Finally, the analysis shows that although the events of created much turmoil for theindustry, the hotel business had already cooled substantially from its record pace of a yearearlier. In conclusion, managers must be careful in applying overall industry statistics to theirown situation and should take into account the factors that distort operating statistics.
