Comments 0

LONDON—Sydney showed slightly higher hotel performance in July 2020 but the same significant level of year-over-year declines, according to preliminary data from STR.

Comparison with July 2019:                                         

  • Occupancy: -57.9% to 33.2%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): -25.7% to AUD143.68
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -68.7% to AUD47.64

Accommodation of returning Australian travelers was the primary source of demand for the market. Leisure travelers provided some additional demand on weekends. July was the second consecutive month that occupancy and RevPAR were above 30% and AUD40.00, respectively.
