Note: I like using Las Vegas as a measure of recovery for both leisure (visitors) and business (conventions).
From the Las Vegas Visitor Authority: November 2022 Las Vegas Visitor Statistics
Even with typical late fall/early winter seasonal volume decreases kicking in after a stellar
October, November 2022 saw visitation of approx. 3.27M, about 5% ahead of last November
and ‐7% shy of November 2019 tallies, supported by a variety of events including the
Automotive After Market Week and the Raiders vs. Colts home game.
Overall hotel occupancy reached 81.2% (+3.6 pts YoY and down ‐7.0 pts vs. Nov 2019).
Weekend occupancy came in at 89.6% (‐1.1 pts of last November and ‐4.5 pts below
November 2019), while Midweek occupancy reached 77.5%, up 5.6 pts vs. last November
but down ‐7.3 pts vs. November 2019’s tally.
The trend of strong room rates continued during the month as ADR approached $187, up
roughly 20% YoY and +38% ahead of November 2019 while RevPAR surpassed $151 for the
