Why London's hotels are booming



London may no longer be the capital city of the world's biggest empire, and it may not be among the world's foremost financial centres forever. But one area in which it still surpasses its rivals is the number of international visitors it receives: more than any other in the world in 2015.

And while the city has long been an attractive destination for leisure and business travellers, it is currently undergoing an almost unprecedented hotel building boom.

The number of hotel rooms has risen from 129,000 in 2013 to 149,000 today, according to PwC, a consultancy, and may reach as many as 180,000 by 2018. Despite competition from room-sharing sites such as Airbnb, there is still no sign of over-capacity.

Last year occupancy rates reached their highest in a decade and average daily rates were higher than ever before. Why is there still so much demand for hotel rooms in London?

One big market for London's hotels is international visitors. But it is one which is running out of steam. Total spending by overseas visitors is likely to be flat in 2015, according to figures due to be released on February 19th.

Whereas the strong pound has convinced many tourists to divert to cheaper European cities (€1 now buys about 15% fewer Princess Diana postcards than it did five years ago), business travellers cannot avoid London so easily.

So while tourist spending stagnated in 2015, business folk splashed out 7% more in Britain than the previous year, according to the Global Business Travel Association, an industry body, which forecasts further growth of 6% this year. So there are still plenty more business people to fill London's extra rooms, even if some tourists are staying away.

Hoteliers’ resilience remains surprising given the onslaught from sharing-economy websites and apps that allow people to rent out their spare rooms to travellers. According to researchers at Boston University, Airbnb, the biggest such service, has forced down hotel revenues in some American cities by as much as 10%.

By comparison, its impact has been muted in London, says Marie Hickey at Savills, an estate agent. Only 0.5% of Londoners advertise their properties on Airbnb, compared with 2.4% of Parisians. One reason is that there is a shortage of reasonably priced residential stock near London’s main tourist attractions, which are hemmed in by offices and mansions.

A second, according to a recent report by Citi, a bank, the growth of Airbnb listings in London and other big European cities is already slowing, meaning that Londoners’ spare rooms are unlikely to be able to soak up much more demand.

But the most convincing explanation is that London's business travellers are shunning locals' spare rooms in favour of comfortable, anonymous hotels. Unlike budget-conscious holidaymakers, who are willing to book a room in a stranger’s home on Airbnb to save a few pounds, most business people travel on expense accounts.

Their employers, citing a duty to ensure safety, remain wary of spare-room-booking sites, fearing the possibility of axe murderers, or at least dodgy wiring or unsafe stairwells. So for now, as long as the City of London continues to flourish, the capital's hotels will do fine.
