As of 13 December, Paris’ occupancy on the books sat at 71.1% for 31 December, which was the highest across Europe’s key markets and the highest for the French capital over the next 90 days.
LONDON — Lifted by the upcoming holiday season, hotel occupancy on the books is rising in Paris with a peak of more than 70% on New Year’s Eve, according to STR’s Forward STAR.
As of 13 December, Paris’ occupancy on the books sat at 71.1% for 31 December, which was the highest across Europe’s key markets and the highest for the French capital over the next 90 days. From that high point, booking levels gradually decrease to a January low of 10.5% on the 31st.
For comparison, Rome and London New Year’s Eve occupancy on the books sits at 56.1% and 52.3%, respectively, while Brussels is even lower at 34.3%.
“Some European markets have been more successful than others in pulling themselves up from pandemic low points despite a massive void in international arrivals,” said Thomas Emanuel, STR’s director. “With the upcoming holiday season, Paris has shown stronger hotel demand than other European capitals. Some of those capitals, such as Brussels and Vienna, continue to struggle to generate momentum due to increased restrictions in the markets.”
