Independent hotels are outperforming themselves and their local market in 2017. Not only are we seeing an increase in REVPAR and RGI, also GOPPAR is sharply moving upwards. This is being impacted notably by shifting sales to direct via the hotels’ own websites, and great efforts by the hotels’ operational teams to up-sell and generate significant incremental F&B spending.
