Performance was affected by supply continuing to outpace demand (room nights sold), however, the absolute occupancy level was the fourth-highest in the market since 2000.

LONDON—STR’s preliminary December 2018 data for hotels in Sydney, Australia, indicates performance declines.   
    
Based on daily data from December, Sydney reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

  • Supply: +3.0%

  • Average daily rate (ADR): -1.1% to AUD245.93
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -2.5% to AUD199.23

Performance was affected by supply continuing to outpace demand (room nights sold), however, the absolute occupancy level was the fourth-highest in the market since 2000.
