According to the MKG – Olakala destination Observatory, the average occupancy rate settled at 64.1%, or +1.9 points growth between 2016 and 2017.

In the Île-de-France, hotel occupancy reached 33.8 million arrivals or +9.5% and 68.1 million nights or +10.6% over 2016. In the region, the inner suburbs benefited most from this recovery with growth by +14.4% (arrivals) and +13.7% (hotel nights). The number of tourists increased at many monuments with figures up +9.5% at the Louvre, +5.6% at the Eiffel Tower, +15.1% at the Château de Versailles, +7.5% at the national museum of Château de Fontainebleau.
