Sydney's hotel occupancy fell 3.4% to 86.5% in November, according to preliminary STR data, and a 3.9% ADR decline to 233.61 Australian dollars ($161.03) drove RevPAR down 7.2% to AU$202.06 ($139.28).
LONDON—STR’s preliminary November 2019 data for hotels in Sydney, Australia, indicates lower performance.
Based on daily data from the month, Sydney reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:
• Supply: +1.9%
• Demand: -1.6%
• Occupancy: -3.4% to 86.5%
• Average daily rate (ADR): -3.9% to AUD233.61
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -7.2% to AUD202.06
November marked the 23rd consecutive month of occupancy declines for the market, most of which were supply-driven. STR analysts partially attribute the decline in demand for November to significant bushfires in the country.
STR will release full November results later this month.
