STR: Preliminary January data for Sydney hotels

February 17, 2018 Hotel Trends No Comments Email Email

STR’s preliminary January 2018 data for hotels in Sydney, Australia, indicates significant growth in both supply and demand.

Based on daily data from January, Sydney reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

  • Supply: +4.2%
  • Demand: +3.2%
  • Occupancy: -0.9% to 81.2%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): +1.5% to AUD222.18
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +0.6% to AUD180.43

STR analysts note that the 4.2% lift in supply (room nights available) caused the first year-over-year January occupancy decline in the market since 2013. Demand still grew without repeat business from Amway China and the Chinese New Year, each of which provided a performance boost in January 2017.

Regardless, the absolute occupancy level was well above the market’s historical average, and ADR growth pushed an overall RevPAR increase for the month.

STR will release full January results later this month. The January edition of STR’s market forecast is now available.
