STR’s preliminary January 2018 data for hotels in Hong Kong indicates significant demand and occupancy levels.
Based on daily data from January, Hong Kong reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:
- Supply: +3.0%
- Demand: +9.2%
- Occupancy: +6.1% to 91.2%
- Average daily rate (ADR): flat at HKD1,428.41

Hong Kong recorded its fourth straight month with occupancy in excess of 90%. In addition, the month was the market’s first January without a negative year-over-year ADR comparison since 2013. STR analysts attributed those past decreases to political uncertainty and economic downturn.
STR will release full January results later this month. The January edition of STR’s market forecast is now available.
