Summary of remarkable 2010-2011 winter tourist season in Montréal

MONTREAL, April 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Recent data obtained from the Hotel Association of Greater Montréal (AHGM) for the month of March allows us to draw up a summary of the 2010-2011 winter tourist season in Montréal.

After an excellent summer tourist season in 2010, growth was expected to continue into winter 2010-2011.

For the entirety of winter 2010-2011 (November 2010 to March 2011), the number of hotel rooms sold increased by 7.7%, from 1,348,815 in the same period one year ago, to 1,453,123.

In addition, the average occupancy rate for hotels in Greater Montréal in winter 2010-2011 reached 55.6%, compared to 50.5% in winter 2009-2010. The number of vacant rooms decreased from 2,670,468 in winter 2009-2010, to 2,615,462 (-2.1%) in winter 2010-2011.

Meanwhile, the average room price went from $124.16 in winter 2009-2010, to $127.67 in winter 2010-2011, representing a 2.8% increase.

Certain other data confirms this trend. From November 2010 to February 2011, 4,083,245 cross-border passengers boarded/disembarked at the Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau International Airport, a 6.8% increase from the same time period one year ago.

Hotel data represents solely the results of members of the AHGM and not those of the totality of Montréal accommodation establishments.
