  • However, our analysis shows a difference per hotel category. The 4 and 5 star hotel sectors are very positive on the coming quarter as well as for 2014 as a whole. The 4 star hoteliers are the most positive hotel segment as none of them is expecting a decrease in neither occupancy nor room rates, not for their own hotels and also not for the market in general for the coming second quarter.
  • The 3 star segment overall expects for 2014 improvements at all levels, but almost 2 out of 10 hoteliers is expecting significant drops in both occupancy and room rates, which tempers the overall climate in this segment for 2014.
  • The 2 star hotel sector is expecting improvements in occupancy for 2014, while room rates are forecasted to stabilise.
