Supply growth (+1.1%) played a role in the overall performance decrease for the country, reaching 1% for the first time since Q4 2014. Despite the performance at the national level, Q2 RevPAR growth was strong in Cologne (+14.9%) and Hamburg (+14.5%). Performance in Cologne was due to large events such as Art Cologne (April) and the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship (May). Hamburg’s levels received a lift ahead of the G20 summit in early July.

In the Netherlands, Occupancy was up 3.9% to 79.5%, ADR increased by 6.0% to EUR129.19 and RevPAR jumped 10.1% to EUR102.72.

The absolute occupancy level was the highest for a Q2 in the Netherlands since 2006. Performance growth was especially pronounced in April (RevPAR: +14.2%). At the market level, Amsterdam reported double-digit RevPAR growth (+10.5%) for the quarter, due primarily to a 7.5% lift in ADR to EUR164.91.

In the United Kingdom Q2 2017 Occupancy rose by 1.0% to 79.6%, ADR was up 5.2% to GBP94.22 and RevPAR increased by 6.3% to GBP75.05.

STR analysts note that the devaluation of the GBP continues to drive inbound travel and stronger domestic tourism in the U.K. At the market level, London recorded an 8.4% rise in RevPAR to GBP127.33, due primarily to a 6.4% increase in ADR to GBP152.70. The market saw only moderate declines in occupancy following the 3 June terrorist attack at London Bridge. Performance growth soon returned and was boosted around Eid Mubarak as London typically welcomes a high volume of visitors from the Middle East during the holiday. Q2 performance growth for Regional U.K. was lower with a RevPAR of +4.8%.
