12 SEPTEMBER 2018 7:32 AM

Melbourne hotels reported occupancy dipped 0.9% to 84% in August, according to preliminary monthly data from STR, while ADR rose 2.2% to 179.89 Australian dollars ($128.17) and lifted RevPAR 1.3% to AU$151.18 ($107.72).

LONDON—STR’s preliminary August 2018 data for hotels in Melbourne, Australia, indicates lower occupancy with higher rates.

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

• Supply: +2.5%
• Demand: +1.6%
• Occupancy: -0.9% to 84.0%
• Average daily rate (ADR): +2.2% to AUD179.89
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +1.3% to AUD151.18

Despite August being one of the colder months of the year, absolute occupancy for Melbourne hotels was the highest for any month since March 2018. The absolute ADR level would be the highest for an August since 2014, while the absolute RevPAR level would be the highest for an August since 2013.

STR will release full August results later this month.
