London saw a fall in hotel occupancy in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris in November.

Hotel occupancy in the month was down 3.5% year on year to just below 82%, according to data analyst STR Global, which noted occupancy in London “decreased year over year for 14 of the 17 days following the November 13 terrorist attacks”.

Revenue per available room (RevPAR) in the city fell 1.4% to £122.38, although the average daily rate rose 2.2% to £149.98.

STR Global reported a 12.3% increase in RevPAR for October in London, with demand up 2.2% year on year against similar increase in supply to that in November.

The average daily rate in October was up 11.9% to £159 and revenue per available room up 12.3% at £139.79.
