Note: I like using Las Vegas as a measure of recovery for both leisure (visitors) and business (conventions).
From the Las Vegas Visitor Authority: May 2022 Las Vegas Visitor Statistics
3.3M visitors, about 12% ahead of last June but approx. 8% behind June 2019.
With room inventory reflecting the net impacts of the openings of the Virgin Hotel Las Vegas
and Resorts World since the middle of last year, overall hotel occupancy reached 82.7%, 6.8
pts ahead of last June but down 9.0 pts vs. June 2019. Weekend occupancy welcomed a
fourth consecutive month at or above 90% and Midweek occupancy reached 80% for the
first time since February 2020 (up 9.1 pts YoY but down 9.7 pts vs. June 2019).
ADR approached $157, 22.7% ahead of last June and over 30% above June 2019 while
RevPAR neared $130 for the month, +33.7% YoY and +17.5% over June 2019.
