Here is how Wikipedia defines GOPPAR.

GOPPAR is the abbreviation for gross operating profit per available room, a key performance indicator for the hotel industry.

It gives greater insight in the actual performance of a hotel than the most commonly used RevPAR as it not only considers revenues generated, but also factors in operational costs related with such revenues.

GOPPAR is the total revenue of the hotel less expenses incurred earning that revenue, divided by the available rooms.

GOPPAR does not take into consideration the revenue mix of the hotel, so while it does not allow an accurate evaluation of the room revenue generated it demonstrates the profitability and value of the property as a whole.

The formula to calculate GOPPAR is:

GOPPAR = Gross Operational Profit / Avaialable Rooms
where,
Gross Operational Profit = Total Revenue - Expenses
Expenses can include Rooms expenses, Food and Beverage expenses, Maketing Expenses, IT mentainace etc...

RevPAR is the widely used matric but it has many limitations and hence, it has to be changed.

RevPAR is the revenue per available room. So it compares your room revenue which may help to calculate the profits.

But what about what the incomes from other departments apart from rooms. Rooms may be the primary product of a hotel but a hotel is not limited to rooms only.

RevPAR do not take the revenue from F&B, Conferences, Banqueting, etc under consideration.

Then it also does not address the expenditure of a hotel into consideration as well.

On the other hand, GOPPAR addresses them all. Hence it serves a better purpose.

Hotels can rely upon GOPPAR during the time of their growth. Again the reason is the same i.e. it includes the expenditure too.

When you grow your expenditure increases. You do some hiring, the number of employees increases. Ergo, monthly expense increases.

May you don renovation, or deploy some new marketing campaigns. In every case, expense increases.

So GOPPAR gives you a better idea of where your business is going.

Verily GOPPAR is an important metric for hotels. It can give you a better idea of your hotel so that you can take your business in the direction you want.

I hope I was able to do justice with the topic.
