Year-on-year, occupancy in the capital decreased for 14 of the 17 days following the atrocities. Overall for the month of November, occupancy fell by 3.5% to 81.6%.
Average daily rate increased by 2.2% to £149.98, while revenue per available room (revpar) decreased by 1.4% to £122.38.
It is believed that the revpar figure was adversely impacted by the 1.7% increase in room supply at the same time as demand decreased by 1.9%.
