2017 First Quarter Operating Results: Total Consolidated Comparable Hotels

Comparable RevPAR increased 1.4% on a Pro-forma basis, attributable to a 1.4% increase in rate, with occupancy remaining relatively flat. Across Park’s major markets:

  • Washington, D.C. was the best performer with RevPAR growth of 10.0% attributable to increased demand during the inauguration and related political events;
  • Chicago showed RevPAR growth of 8.1% with an increase in both rate and occupancy primarily from increased group business and renovation disruptions in 2016 at the Hilton Chicago; and
  • Hawaii generated RevPAR growth of 4.1% due to an increase in rate driven by an increase in group business.

The solid performance was primarily attributable to increases in group business, which accounted for approximately one-third of revenues. Group rooms revenue for the quarter increased by 7.1%, led by the following properties:

  • Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort increased 28.4%
  • Parc 55 San Francisco – a Hilton Hotel increased 23.8%
  • Hilton Chicago increased 22.2%; and
  • Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek increased 16.1%.

2017 First Quarter Operating Results: Top 10 Hotels

RevPAR for Park’s Top 10 Hotels, which accounts for approximately 66% of Hotel Adjusted EBITDA, grew 1.8% on a Pro-forma basis, driven by a 1.0 percentage point increase in occupancy and a 0.5% increase in rate. Within the Top 10 Hotels:

  • Hilton Chicago was the best performing hotel with RevPAR growth of 17.5% from strong group demand and renovation disruptions in 2016;
  • Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek had RevPAR growth of 8.7%;
  • Parc 55 San Francisco – a Hilton Hotel had RevPAR growth of 4.2%;
  • Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort had RevPAR growth of 4.1%; and
  • New York Hilton Midtown had RevPAR growth of 2.9%.

Hilton San Francisco Union Square was the weakest performer with a decrease in RevPAR of 8.0%, due to ongoing renovations and a tough comparable period in 2017 due to the Super Bowl in 2016.
