STR: Preliminary June data for Melbourne hotels
12 JULY 2017 7:39 AM

Melbourne's hotel market reported mostly positive performance in June, according to preliminary STR data. Occupancy dipped 0.7% to 78.3%, while ADR rose 2.7% to 176.10 Australian dollars ($135.09) and RevPAR increased 2% to AU$137.88 ($105.77).

LONDON—STR’s preliminary June 2017 data for Melbourne, Australia, indicates a slight dip in occupancy, but an increase in rates.

Based on daily data from June, Melbourne reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

  • Supply: +4.2%
  • Demand: +3.5%
  • Occupancy: -0.7% to 78.3%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): +2.7% to AUD176.10
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +2.0% to AUD137.88

STR analysts attribute the occupancy decline to substantial supply growth. Demand performance also remained healthy in the market. On Friday, 9 June, Melbourne hosted an international friendly soccer match between Brazil and Argentina, resulting in significant occupancy growth (+9.5%) and a double-digit rise in ADR (+29.9%) compared with the same day last year.

STR will release actual June 2017 results later this month.
