* a 7.7-percent growth in average daily rate to AUD198.31; and

“After two years of RevPAR decline in January, Sydney recorded double-digit growth in this measure, posting record levels of any January in the three key performance measures since STR Global began collecting data for this market”, said Elizabeth Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “The significant pickup in demand led to an increase in occupancy and rates, while the growth in ADR mainly drove the positive hotel performance”.
