During the period, RevPAR growth stood at 7.1 percent, driven by price hikes and occupancy increases. For the year, the occupancy rate in the city’s hotels is expected to stay flat at 86.6 percent. That percentage is identical to the full-year figure from 2017 and is higher than the national average of 61.6 percent. Read the report here.
