TRevPAR (Total Revenue per Available Room)

What is TRevPAR in the hotel industry?

TRevPAR stands for Total Revenue per Available Room, and it is a key performance metric used in the hotel industry. It measures the total revenue generated by a hotel per available room, taking into account rooms sold, average daily rate, and other services provided by the hotel (such as food and beverage sales). TRevPAR is calculated by dividing total revenue by the total number of available rooms in the hotel.

TRevPAR typically differs across property types due to varying levels of demand, cost structures, and product offerings. For example, luxury properties often have a higher TRevPAR than budget hotels in the same area because they offer more amenities, better rooms at a higher price point, etc. 

Some elements that can affect a hotel's TRevPAR include:

  1. Room Rates: Room rates are the primary factor in determining a hotel's TRevPAR and can fluctuate based on the seasonality of demand, the hotel's location, the current market conditions, and the hotel's marketing strategy.
  2. Occupancy Rates: Occupancy rates are another key factor in determining a hotel's TRevPAR. Hotels that are able to maintain higher occupancy rates will be able to generate more revenue than those with lower occupancy rates.
  3. Additional Services Offered: Hotels that offer additional services such as restaurants, spa, and other amenities can also increase their TRevPAR by charging more for these services.
  4. Cost Structures: Hotels that have higher cost structures (such as high labor costs, high rent, etc.) will have a lower TRevPAR compared to those with lower cost structures.
  5. Marketing Strategies: Hotels that have effective marketing strategies (such as loyalty programs, digital marketing, etc.) can increase their TRevPAR by driving more demand to the property.

How do you calculate TRevPAR?

TRevPAR is calculated by adding together the room revenue and non-room revenue (such as food, beverage and other services) and dividing that amount by the total number of available rooms.

The TRevPAR formula is: TRevPAR = Total Revenue / Available Rooms

For example, let's say a hotel had a total revenue of $100,000 and 100 available rooms. The TRevPAR for the hotel in this example would be $1,000. 

Why is TRevPAR important to hotels? 

TRevPAR is important because it provides an overall measure of a hotel's revenue-generating ability by taking into account both occupancy and average daily rate. It allows hotel owners and managers to quickly and easily compare their performance to that of the competition and to assess how the hotel is performing relative to its goals. It can also help them identify areas for improvement and make better-informed decisions about pricing, marketing, and other operational aspects of their business.

How do you increase a hotel’s TRevPAR?

A few ways to increase TRevPAR at a hotel include:

  1. Offering Value-Added Services: By providing additional services such as laundry, concierge, and room service, hotels can increase their TRevPAR.
  2. Enhancing the Guest Experience: Providing excellent customer service and a pleasant stay experience can help to increase TRevPAR as guests are more likely to return and recommend the hotel to others.
  3. Leveraging Technology: Utilizing technology such as automated check-in and payment systems can help to reduce costs and increase efficiency, resulting in higher TRevPAR.
  4. Enhancing Marketing Efforts: Utilizing effective marketing strategies such as advertising, email campaigns, and social media can help to attract more business, resulting in increased TRevPAR.
