Hotel Tourism Short-Term Trends disseminates the results of the Hotel Occupancy Survey, Hotel Price Indices and Profitability Indicators for the hotel sector every month.

The Hotel occupancy survey provides information on travellers, overnight stays and the average length of stay distributed by country of residence for foreign travellers or Autonomous Community of origin for Spanish travellers, as well as the type of establishments that they stay in. It also provides estimates of the number of open establishments, vacancies, occupancy rate and employment in the sector, by type of establishment.

The Hotel price index is a statistical measure of the evolution of the prices applied by business owners to the different clients who stay at Spanish hotels. It therefore measures the evolution of prices in the sector from the supply perspective.

The main objective of the Profitability indicators of the hotel sector is to obtain the ADR (Average Daily Rate) and RevPAR (Revenue per Available Room). These two variables, along with the occupancy rate per room, constitute an important source of information for hotel establishments, enabling them to assess their price policy.
