Manchester hotels see uptick in 2013 results

February 21, 2014 Statistics & Trends No Comments Email Email

The Manchester hotel industry saw positive demand and revenue-per-available-room growth during 2013, according to data compiled by STR Global.

Manchester hotels saw increases in both demand and RevPAR across all but one month in 2013. This positive trend was due to corporate travel, with the market’s actual RevPAR peaking in the fourth quarter of the year.


2013 daily data comparisons show weekday occupancy and rate growth outstripped the slowing growth achieved on the weekend, indicating the business segment is resurgent and will fuel the remainder of Manchester’s recovery. In actual terms, weekday RevPAR for 2013 still finished GBP£9.13 behind the weekend average of GBP£56.73.

Manchester’s recovery has not gone unnoticed by developers, as the market’s pipeline includes 4,346 rooms, which will increase supply by 32 percent. The pipeline includes properties ranging from the Upper Upscale segment to the Economy segment. This supply increase will put considerable pressure on future growth.

A diverse range of demand drivers will make the market much more resilient in the face of any further economic instability.
