Dubai hotel market grows

Average room rates drop which causes fuller hotels during August.

Average daily rate in the emirate drops 10.2 per cent to Dh515.22 (£106)

Demand for hotel rooms grew at 9.2 per cent year on year. There was also an increase in the total number of rooms available.

In July Dubai saw the construction of 67 new hotels with an increase of over 20,000 rooms. Other countries in the middle east also built similar levels of hotels during the same period.
