Dubai mid-market hotels gain ground as visitor profiles change
06 July, 2015
Dubai mid-market hotels are coping better with falling room rates than their upmarket rivals, new research shows. The emirate is shifting towards the development of more mid-market hotels as the profiles of visitors change, according to the property consultancy Knight Frank. Its latest Dubai Hospitality Report covering the first half of this year said there were a number of driving forces behind the demand for mid-market properties, including a growing middle class from countries in the GCC, China, India and Africa, and a younger profile of guests with more limited disposable income.
