Hotel Bulletin Q3 2016
Strong Performance for key UK tourist cities post Brexit vote
By Russell Kett, Chairman at HVS - London Office
The Q3 2016 Hotel Bulletin analyses the first full quarter of data following the EU referendum in June. Very early trends suggest that a divide could be emerging between leisure and corporate focused markets. Cities with larger tourist industries recorded strong RevPAR growth as international visitors flocked to benefit from a weaker Pound, whereas cities outside this group continued recent trends of plateauing or declining RevPAR. This quarter's Focus examines he independently branded hotel market, where a number of groups have created unique customer propositions and enjoyed significant success.
