Miami hoteliers saw occupancy fall slightly in November compared to the previous year, though rates remained stable. A spokeswoman for the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau attributed the drop to the timing of Art Basel Miami Beach and satellite fairs, some of which started in late November last year. This year, all of the fairs began in December.
Hotels in Miami-Dade were nearly 78 percent full, a drop of less than a percentage point from the year before at nearly unchanged average rates of $152.54 a day. Per-room revenue dropped slightly to $118.70, according to numbers released Thursday by Smith Travel Research.
In Broward, occupancy increased 3 percentage points to 73.5 percent, with rates up almost 4 percent to $106.82 a day. Revenue per available room jumped 7 percent to $78.47.
The Florida Keys saw occupancy drop 1.5 percentage points to 73.1 percent, with rates up almost 5 percent to more than $193. Per-room revenue increased 3 percent to more than $141.
