Hotel Inflation Report Reveals Potential for Price Increases

The recently published white paper Hotel Inflation Report 2023 reveals that the hotel industry has effectively managed inflation and passed on rising energy and labor costs to guests. Managing costs and maintaining profitability is one of the industry’s greatest strengths.

Created by SuitePadthe main European supplier of tablets in the room for the hospitality industry and an expert in digital communication for guests, the report also reveals that this successful cost management applies only to the Average Daily Rate (ADR) and not to complementary services. While the average daily rate (ADR) in Europe increased by 18.5% to USD 148.9 in 2022 compared to the previous year, the prices of additional services such as breakfast, room service and spa treatments spa only increased by an average of 7%.

“A 7% increase in prices for additional services is relatively high, but it remains below the current inflation rate of 9.2% in the euro area and seems even more subdued compared to the ADR increase. says Moritz von Petersdorff. Champion, co-founder and CEO of SuitePad.


”Our conclusion and, at the same time, our recommendation to the hotel industry is to review the current price of the additional services mentioned above, the upselling, and increase it if necessary. After all, if a guest is willing to spend 20% more on their room, for example, they should also be willing to pay 10% more for breakfast.” says v. Petersdorff-Campen. The Hotel Inflation Report differentiates between individual ancillary services and their prices, considers the different star ratings, and provides a comparative analysis of your services and prices.
