As the COVID19 situation in France has worsened, the country’s daily hotel occupancy plummeted to as low as 3.3% on 17 March, according to preliminary data from STR and In Extenso TCH.

Daily occupancy in the country was as high as 65.3% on 26 February and had been positioned above 30% through 12 March.

However, a sharp downward trend began as the number of confirmed COVID19 cases grew and the government implemented measures to combat the spread.

STR’s most recent data for 17 March showed that just three of 100 rooms on average were occupied in the country.

At the market-level, Paris reached a daily occupancy peak of 84% on 17 January, during the start of Haute Couture Fashion Week.

The market’s daily occupancy remained above 50% as late as 3 March, however, downward movement began on 1 March, and absolute occupancy fell 97.2% year-on-year to 1.8% on 17 March amid the closure of the European Union borders to most non-EU citizens.
