New bedrooms in London squeezes hotel occupancy figure for March

New supply of bedrooms had a negative impact on occupancy figures in London during March, according to preliminary data from STR Global.

Occupancy fell 1.7% to 78.6%, alongside a decrease in revenue per available room to £105.16. However, average daily rate increased 1.1% to £133.77.

A 2% rise in demand for rooms failed to match the 3.7% increase in supply of new rooms.
