London played host to history’s most successful Paralympic Games and the period (29 August – 9 September 2012) reflected this with an ADR rise of just 1.3% from the same time period last year and a revenue increase of 5.7% year on year.
Jan Tissera, international president, TravelClick, commented:
“London hoteliers had a very successful Olympic Games period, however, the Paralympic Games always takes a smaller stage than its predecessor. Hoteliers were right to be cautious about not pricing rooms too high for the period in order to fully capitalise on the event . They can now look forward to the legacy of the Games hopefully drawing in more tourism to London.”
