The Horwath HTL ASEAN Hotel Market Sentiment Survey has been designed to provide the hotel industry with a quick assessment of the future market outlook. The four-question survey focuses on the outlook for occupancy, average room rate and total revenue. In this mid-year survey, hoteliers have been asked to share their expectation in respect of market performance for the coming semester when compared to market performance in the second half of last year, as well as provide feedback regarding the impact continued global economic uncertainties have had on demand.
