STR: Preliminary April data for Munich hotels
STR’s preliminary April 2018 data for Munich, Germany, indicates significant demand and performance growth.
Based on daily data from April, Munich reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:
- Supply: +5.0 percent
- Demand: +7.1 percent
- Occupancy: +2.0 percent to 73.1 percent
- Average daily rate (ADR): +12.9 percent to EUR119.50
- Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +15.1 percent to EUR87.30
This marked the first ADR and RevPAR increases for any month in Munich since December 2017. STR analysts credit the performance largely to the favorable side of the Easter calendar shift from April in 2017 to March in 2018. Analytica and ceramitec, which both occurred 10-13 April, also provided a performance boost. Typically, April performance fluctuates in the market due to off years for the bauma trade fair.
STR will release full April results later this month. The May edition of STR’s Market Forecast will be available at the end of the month.
