Orange County Hospitality Market Report
Recovery Spreads Across Market Classes;
Disneyland Boosts Sector Performance
Full service metrics strengthen. Lower-tier properties led metro improvement throughout the health crisis, and upper-tier hotels are expected to see similar metrics by year-end. Revenue for upper upscale properties in the trailing 12-month period ended in May topped $1 billion, stemming from an occupancy jump of 3,310 basis points and a 50 percent ADR increase. Economy still has the highest occupancy, but resumed growth at higher-tier hotels will boost the metro’s overall performance. Orange County’s mean ADR and RevPAR will both end the year above their pre-pandemic highs; meanwhile, occupancy lags its peak by 770 basis points, implying space for further improvements in the metro’s revenue metrics.
