Report: Room rates, occupancy drop for Qatar hotels


Hotels in Doha had more empty rooms and lower prices in February than for the same month last year, according to figures from hospitality data analysts STR Global.

Occupancy rates for the month were down 16 percent, as two-thirds of rooms (65 percent) had guests, while revenue per available room (RevPAR) dropped 24 percent to QR322.72. This was partly due to an increase in the number of hotel rooms in the city, which has increased 6.8 percent so far this year, and a “slowing in international arrivals due to a drop in oil prices and an increase in security concerns,” the report said.
