Preliminary February data for Melbourne released by STR

STR Global’s preliminary February 2016 data for Melbourne, Australia, indicates moderate performance increases due to consistently strong occupancy and ADR.

Based on daily data from February, Melbourne reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

• increases in supply (+0.9%) and demand (+1.1%);
• a 0.2% increase in occupancy to 89.9%;
• a 0.2% increase in ADR to AUD205.80; and
