Hotel room tariffs to rise by 15 pc

Hospitality — By on September 15, 2010 at 4:57 am

In an attempt to cash in on the peak winter season and the improved economic scenario, “Hoteliers are planning to increase the average room rates (ARRs) by 10-15 per cent from September 2010 as they expect tourist traffic to improve,” says a report by domestic brokerage Angel Broking. Although, the report didn’t talk about their plans for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, it is expected that tariffs will increase from October 3-14 on the back of strong demand. Last two years proved dull for the hotel companies as they were forced to slash average room rates by 25-30 per cent due to terrorist attacks in the country that led to lower occupancy levels as people were apprehensive to travel, the report said.
