Marriott opens 400-room, five-star hotel at Al Forsan in Khalifa City

Posted in News on 22 March, 2017

Abu Dhabi’s hotel inventory has just become larger with the opening of the 400-room Marriott Hotel Al Forsan.

Data from the research and analytics company STR shows that in February the average occupancy rate in Abu Dhabi inched up 0.1 per cent year-on-year to 76.5 per cent, and the average daily rate rose by 17.9 per cent year-on-year to Dh577.21.

Revenue per available room, a key industry measure, also increased 18.1 per cent to Dh441.63.

STR, however, attributed last month’s increase to events such as the five-day International Defence Exhibition and Conference, and the three-day IBTM Arabia trade fair.

Meetings and conferences tend to boost the otherwise lukewarm performance of hotels in the capital, especially during the slower summer months.
