quarter.  -1.7% Houston
-13.1%
“Because of the comparison with the post-hurricane demand
period of 2017, September broke the industry’s 102-month stretch
of consecutive RevPAR increases and ultimately pulled down Mexico City
growth for the quarter as a whole,” said Bobby Bowers, STR’s +10.1% Puerto Rico
senior VP of operations. “Actually, that 1.7% rise in RevPAR +11.3%
was the lowest for a Q3 since the current growth cycle
started in 2010. Regardless, growth is growth, and overall +2.5%
industry performance remains in good shape with our (USD CC)
forecast calling for growth through at least 2019.” Quito
+8.3%
San Francisco/San Mateo, California posted the highest lift in
ADR (+8.3% to US$257.03).
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-New Jersey saw the second-largest Lima
increases in occupancy (+4.4% to 75.1%) and RevPAR (+8.2% to -15.1%
US$98.57).
Rio de Janeiro
Occupancy in Lima decreased for the fifth consecutive month. +6.1%
STR analysts attribute performance declines to an influx of new
supply (+7.2%) combined with a dip in demand (-3.5%). Sao Paolo
+19.6%
Demand (room nights sold) increased 16.3% in the Quito
market. STR analysts note that an improved political situation
in Ecuador has helped increase tourism.

Asia Pacific
STR analysts note that key markets in the region, such as
Thailand, saw a softening in demand growth from mainland
China.
Chengdu Osaka
+17.8% Busan -14.7% Hong Kong hotels have posted a year-over-year increase in
+10.7% RevPAR for 17 consecutive months. According to STR analysts,
the September increase had to be driven primarily by ADR
growth as Typhoon Mangkhut led to three days with double-
digit declines in demand and occupancy (15-17 September). 
Danang Hong Kong SAR
Goa -18.3% RevPAR of Osaka has declined year over year for seven

Typhoon Jebi had a significant impact on Osaka’s performance
levels as did continued significant supply growth.

-1.7% Sharjah -5.7% Beirut’s declines were largely attributable
-14.8% to high performance levels last September,
according to STR analysts. Performance growth
was well-pronounced during most of the months
of 2017 due to a stabilized political climate
and a boost in tourism. Despite the year-over-
year performance decrease, Beirut’s absolute
occupancy level was the second-highest for a
+2.4% September in the market over the last seven
years. Only September 2017 (71.3%) was higher
Seychelles (USD CC) during that time. 
+5.3%
Nairobi In Riyadh, STR analysts attribute a 33.4%
+11.4% jump in demand (room nights sold) to four
events hosted at the Riyadh International
Convention & Exhibition Center. The 56.3%
absolute occupancy level was the highest for
any September in the market since 2014. The
highest occupancy night came on 25 September
(78.5%), which was the first day of the SFDA
Mauritius Annual Conference & Exhibition. The decline
+12.2% in monthly ADR was likely due to continued
significant supply growth (+5.8% year to date).
