    Royal Wedding was disappointing for London hotels:(

    The Royal Wedding was a disappointment for London's hotels, according to the latest HotStats survey from TRI Hospitality Consulting.

    Profit levels for the capital's hotel rooms soared during April, but not because of the royal nuptials.

    Despite the boost in number of visitors to the capital to celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the HotStats survey shows that the demand for full-service hotels during this period was not as strong as anticipated.

    Room occupancy levels dropped to around 60% on the day of the wedding (29 April). The previous Easter weekend was also poor for business, with year-on-year occupancy levels dropping by 26% to 46%.:confused:
