WATERTOWN, N.Y. — Jefferson County hotels saw an increase in guests in January.

Revenue per available room (RevPar), a key industry gauge that measures how much money hotels are bringing in per available room, jumped 17.3 percent to $35.48 in January from the year-ago month. 

Average daily rate (ADR), which represents the average rental rate for a sold room, went up 9.6 percent to $98.60 in January from the same month in 2022.
