Yorkshire Tourist Board's
Hotel Occupancy Survey - York

The distinction between bed and room occupancy:

This is seen as linked to the different tourist markets. A conference destination may prefer to look at room occupancy - i.e. a single conference delegate in a double room counts as 100% room occupancy - but 50% bed occupancy. In contrast family holidaymakers will probably occupy more or all of the beds in each room. Maximising bed occupancy is therefore more significant for holiday destinations.

Given that York is interested in both leisure and conference visitors, we wish to see continued improvements in both tables.
