Second Lockdown Hurts Melbourne

The absolute levels across Occ, ADR & RevPAR were the lowest for any month in STR’s Melbourne database


Key points:

  • Occupancy: -69.1% to 26.3%

  • ADR: -47.2% to $99

  • RevPAR: -83.7% to $26


Preliminary data from STR showed Melbourne continued with lower hotel performance in October 2020 reflecting the negative impact of a second lockdown.


YOY declines remained significant. Oct 2020 vs Oct 2019:

  • Occupancy: -69.1% to 26.3%

  • ADR: -47.2% to $99

  • RevPAR: -83.7% to $26


Travel restrictions of accommodation services remained in place for October with only “essential” travel permitted. Optimistically, the restrictions have begun to ease in Melbourne with the first steps beginning on 28 October, after 111 days of lockdown.


The absolute levels across the three metrics were the lowest for any month in STR’s Melbourne database. October was the second consecutive month that occupancy and RevPAR were below 30% and $30, respectively.
