Abu Dhabi hotels in February are projected to post their biggest rise in average daily room rates in the last two years, according to latest data from STR.

STR’s preliminary February data showed a 17.9% jump in ADR to AED 577.21 (US $157.14), putting an end to the trend of rate declines-driven oversupply of hotels in the city. Based on data from February, STR said Abu Dhabi reported a 1.5% rise in hotel supply while demand increased by 1.7%.

November's Formula 1 Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi boosted hotel revenues in November compared to the rest of 2016; however, profit per room was down on previous years.
