Average occupancy at 30 percent between August and now, Rattan Keswani, Deputy MD of Lemon Tree Hotels told CNBC-TV18.
“This is largely been driven by staycations and working in hotels in close-by drive-in locations because the commercial traffic has not shown any uptick whatsoever,” he said.
However, he added that there has been some commercial uptick in the tier-II and below cities.
On pricing, Keswani said room rates were 15-18 percent down this year. However, he added that they are seeing an uptick in pricing gradually as demand was picking up.
