LONDON—Hotels in the Central/South America region reported negative performance results in February 2017, according to data from STR.

U.S. dollar constant currency, year-over-year comparisons:

Central/South America region

  • Occupancy: -2.5% to 55.4%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): -7.0% to US$102.56

Argentina’s strong February performance was primarily driven by hotels in the Upscale and Upper Midscale classes (RevPAR: +14.3%). STR analysts note that the country’s hotel market is regaining stability after the devaluation of the Argentinian peso in 2016.


  • Occupancy: -5.1% to 59.7%
  • ADR: -1.1% to COP280,127.96
  • RevPAR: -6.1% to COP167,203.22

February marked Colombia’s third consecutive month of RevPAR declines, which was mainly the result of a 1.6% drop in demand coupled with a 3.7% increase in supply. Looking at performance by class, Midscale and Economy was the only segment to post growth (RevPAR: +6.5%). STR analysts suggest this is reflective of a more price-sensitive consumer base.


  • Occupancy: -3.6% to 54.4%
  • ADR: -10.6% to PEN404.95
  • RevPAR: -13.8% to PEN220.17
