STR: Preliminary August data for London hotels
11 SEPTEMBER 2017 8:56 AM

London's hotels reported mixed year-over-year performance in August, according to STR preliminary data. Occupancy dropped 2.7% to 82.3%, but ADR rose 3% to £143.28 ($189.12) and RevPAR increased just 0.2% to £117.90 ($155.62).

LONDON—STR’s preliminary August 2017 data for hotels in London, England, indicates a year-over-year decline in occupancy levels, but growth in average daily rate (ADR).

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

  • Supply: +4.0%
  • Demand: +1.2%
  • Occupancy: -2.7% to 82.3%
  • ADR: +3.0% to GBP143.28
  • Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR): +0.2% to GBP117.90

August marked London’s 10th consecutive month of ADR growth, due primarily to the pound devaluation caused by the June 2016 Brexit vote. STR analysts note that London’s occupancy decline was a result of the spike in supply. The number of rooms sold in the market went up, but supply grew at a quicker rate.

STR will release full August 2017 results later this month.
