Rotterdam: the Batavian pearl

Highly dependent on the activity of the number-one port worldwide and the health of the oil, chemical and petrochemical industries, the morale of Rotterdam’s hoteliers is good. Last October, the city reported growth by 7.4% in its RevPAR. And the previous months were even better. August and September posted respective growth by 15.7% and 16.6%. At the same time, the port just surpassed 10 million containers, a record for the only European port alongside Le Havre that is able to accommodate supertankers. The result: across twelve cumulated months, the RevPAR will grow by 8.1% thanks to strong growth in the average daily rate and relatively stable occupancy of businessmen (+0.9 point). While leisure tourism in Rotterdam is not as intense as it is in Amsterdam, the future looks bright for the city’s properties. Port activities have doubled in 10 years and should be multiplied by 2.5 by 2020. In the port of Rotterdam, hoteliers may be happy about the bright future that lies ahead...Highly dependent on the activity of the number-one port worldwide and the health of the oil, chemical and petrochemical industries, the morale of Rotterdam’s hoteliers is good.
