by Calculated Risk on 6/30/2022 03:52:00 PM

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

Visitation exceeded 3.4M visitors in May, surpassing last May by 19.8% and approx. 7% shy
of May 2019.

Overall hotel occupancy reached 82.6%, 11.7 pts ahead of last May and down 8.2 pts vs.
May 2019. Weekend occupancy again was in the 90’s (91.9%, up 4.1 pts YoY and down 4.5
pts vs. May 2019) while Midweek occupancy exceeded 78% (up 16.0 pts YoY and down 9.3
pts vs. May 2019).

Following last month’s record-breaking ADR, May saw another month with ADR reaching
nearly $176, 38.7% ahead of last May and over 25% above May 2019 while RevPAR
exceeded $145 for the month, significantly ahead of May 2021 (+61.6%) and 13.8% over
May 2019.
