STR: Preliminary September data for London hotels
12 OCTOBER 2017 8:57 AM

Preliminary data from STR shows London hotels saw occupancy decrease 1.6% year over year to 86.9% during September. ADR rose 1% to £165.39 ($217.35), but RevPAR decreased 0.6% to £143.69 ($188.84). 

LONDON—STR’s preliminary September 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 September, London reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

  • Supply: +3.9%
  • Demand: +2.3%
  • Occupancy: -1.6% to 86.9%
  • ADR: +1.0% to GBP165.39
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -0.6% to GBP143.69

London’s hotel supply continues to grow and pressure the market’s occupancy levels. STR analyst note that demand (rooms sold) was likely boosted by the biennial Defence and Security Equipment International fair (12-15 September), which was estimated to host more than 34,000 attendees. September was London’s 11th consecutive month of ADR growth.

STR will release full September 2017 results later this month.
