STR: Preliminary April data for Melbourne hotels

May 12, 2017 Hotel Trends No Comments Email Email

STR’s preliminary April 2017 data for Melbourne, Australia, indicates performance consistent with significant supply growth. Based on daily data from April, Melbourne reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

  • Supply: +3.9%
  • Demand: +1.2%
  • Occupancy: -2.6% to 80.9%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): +0.6% to AUD176.23
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -2.0% to AUD142.51

April marked the second month in a row with supply growth nearing 4% in Melbourne. STR analysts believe this is the reason behind the lowest occupancy percentage in the market since June 2016 and the lowest ADR level since August 2016.

Additionally, year-over-year results were unfavorably affected by the Easter calendar shift from March 201

6 to April 2017. The specific impact was seen in a pair of corporate travel weeks that were unaffected last April. STR will release actual April 2017 results later this month. The May edition of STR’s Market Forecast also will be available in the coming weeks.
