Choice Hotels Asia- Pac CEO Trent Fraser said: “Choice Hotels Asia-Pac’s results throughout the year have achieved growth in revenue per available room (RevPAR) and average daily rates (ADR) each quarter when compared to 2019 pre-pandemic figures.”

“2023 will have its own economic challenges, which I feel confident our Asia-Pac hotels are well prepared to meet. We saw 19 new properties join the group in 2022, with many coming online over the end of year holiday period in Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, India, and Japan. There are many more in the pipeline for 2023 ready to reap the benefits of being part of the Choice Hotels Asia-Pac family.”
