Most hotels were located in the county of Hordaland in 2019, which was merged with the county Sogn and Fjordane in 2020, and now goes under the name Vestland. The busiest months for hotels were during the summer months between June and August, peaking in July at roughly 3.4 million overnight stays. The highest price per hotel room was registered in June 2019, when it cost 1,078 Norwegian kroner per night. Not surprisingly, tourists could get the cheapest hotels rooms in January that same year by paying 935 kroner.
The leading hotel company in Norway is Norwegian-owned Nordic Choice Hotels. The hotel operator has been expanding over the years and counted over 90 hotels, and 16.5 thousand rooms in Norway in 2019. During that year, the revenue per available room (RevPAR) amounted to 679 Norwegian kroner. By comparison, the revenue per available room of the second largest hotel chain in Norway, Scandic, amounted to 707 Swedish kronor, which was roughly 733 Norwegian kroner when converted. While Swedish-founded Scandic is the leading the hotel market of the Nordic countries, the hotel chain was recently overhauled by Nordic Choice Hotels. In 2019, Scandic operated 87 hotels and around 16.3 thousand rooms in Norway. Another notable hotel chain in Norway is Norwegian-owned Thon hotels, which counted around 12 thousand rooms, and generated 575 Norwegian kroner of revenue per available room in 2019.
