Hilton Reached 106% Rise in Q4 Revenue at $1.84 Billion as Travel Demand Rebounds

The Index Today

Hilton Worldwide Holdings (NYSE:HLT) Inc just reached a 106% rise in fourth-quarter revenue on Wednesday, as higher vaccination rates and a rebound in travel demand during the holiday period boosted occupancy rates at its hotels.

Hotel operators around the globe have seen benefits from higher travel demand during the fourth quarter as more people checked into hotels during the holiday period, boosting the hotel occupancy rates to near pre-pandemic levels.

Hilton reported comparable RevPAR (revenue per available room) of $84.14 for the quarter. The company's occupancy rates across its hotels stood at 61.3% for the fourth-quarter, compared with 20.7% a year earlier.

Reuters reported that the company presented net income attributable to shareholders of $147 million, or 52 cents per share, for the quarter ended Dec. 31, compared to a net loss of $224 million or 81 cents per share, a year earlier. Peer Marriott International (NASDAQ:MAR) Inc topped analyst estimates for fourth-quarter results on Tuesday, with occupancy rates in its U.S. and Canada region jumping to 60% from 35.1% a year earlier.

Hilton reported quarterly revenue of $1.84 billion, compared with $890 million a year earlier.
