MONTERREY, Mexico–(hospitalitybusinessnews.com)– Fibra Inn today announced its operating results for its hotel indicators as of March and first quarter of 2016.
|MONTHLY SAME-STORE SALES|
|38 hotels||March 2016||March 2015||Change %|
|Room Revenue (Ps. millions)||140.1||118.1||18.6%|
|Occupancy exc. addition of rooms||65.2%||60.6%||4.6 pp|
|RevPar exc. addition of rooms||756.6||637.7||18.6%|
The 18.6% increase in Revenue per Available Room (RevPar excluding the addition of rooms) was the net effect of:
a. A 10.3% ADR increase resulting from: (i) double-digit growth in hotel rates in 18 hotels of the Company’s portfolio. This increase is driven by adequate management and implementation of hotel rates; and (ii) the positive impact of foreign exchange variations over rates negotiated in U.S. dollars, due to global brands.
b. Occupancy levels increased 4.6 percentage points, benefited by the economic activity in the northern and central regions of Mexico that continue to show signs of strength, despite the Easter holiday period falling in the month of March.
Total Sales for March 2016 were:
