STR’s preliminary December 2019 data for hotels in London indicates lower occupancy but higher rates.
Based on daily data from the month, London reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:
- Supply: +2.1%
- Demand: +1.1%
- Occupancy: -1.0% to 81.2%
- Average daily rate (ADR): +2.6% to GBP159.48
- Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +1.5% to GBP129.44
The absolute ADR and RevPAR levels are the highest for any December in STR’s London database. STR analysts note that although there was a slight decline in occupancy, London saw nine nights 90% and higher in the metric, likely due to Christmas festivities.
STR will release full December total-year results later this month.
