With Ramadan this year falling during the summer period which is considered a slow season in the UAE and with additional room inventory in the Downtown area, the property has recorded up to 96% occupancy during the third and last weeks of Ramadan compared to the same period in year 2011 and 2012.
During the period, the property sold 3,744 room nights, surpassing the 2012 figure by nine percent. Majority of the hotel guests are from the GCC region with KSA topping the list with 1,722 room nights, followed by UAE and Kuwait.
Wael El Behi, General Manager, Ramada Downtown Dubai, said: “We are very pleased with our occupancy rate during the holy month of Ramadan, as the summer season has always been a challenging period for the hotels in the UAE. One of the factors for this good performance is DTCM’s “Summer is Dubai” campaign, which started in June with Dubai Summer Surprises, helping boost the tourism industry in the emirates. In addition, Ramada Downtown has an excellent location, first rate amenities and topnotch service which provide best value for money, making it the hotel of choice for both leisure and corporate travellers during this period.”
