Hong Kong

• Occupancy: -4.2% to 82.8%
• ADR: +8.1% to HKD1,458.29
• RevPAR: +3.6% to HKD1,206.94

Hong Kong hotels have posted a year-over-year increase in RevPAR for 17 consecutive months. According to STR analysts, the September increase had to be driven primarily by ADR growth as Typhoon Mangkhut led to three days with double-digit declines in demand and occupancy (15-17 September).

Osaka, Japan

• Occupancy: -14.7% to 76.9%
• ADR: -6.3% to JPY14,018.50
• RevPAR: -20.1% to JPY10,774.26

RevPAR has declined year over year for seven consecutive months in the market. STR analysts note that Typhoon Jebi had a significant impact on Osaka’s performance levels as did continued significant supply growth.
