Enter the total cost of the hotel/apartment and the number of occupied rooms into the calculator to determine the cost per occupied room.

Cost Per Occupied Room Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Cost Per Occupied Room.

CPOR = C / #OR

  • Where CPOR is the cost per occupied room ($/room)
  • C is the total cost to run the hotel/apartment complex ($)
  • #OR is the number of occupied rooms

To calculate the cost per occupied room, divide the operation costs of the building by the number of occupied rooms.

Next, determine the number of occupied rooms. On average, this hotel has 40 rooms occupied.

Finally, calculate the cost per occupied room using the formula above:

CPOR = C / #OR

CPOR = $4,000 / 40

CPOR = $100.00 /room
