A look at London hotel's website performance in February.


London’s hotel industry enjoyed one of their strongest months in February with month-over-month website performance improvements set to continue into March.

Average hotel website sessions were up 25% on January equalling the same traffic enjoyed by London properties in October and November, 2021. Transactions were also up by a massive 51% on January buoyed by weekend bookings and at their highest level since the start of the pandemic.

Customers still prefer to make hotel bookings from desktop devices 72% v 26% on mobile devices. 

However, mobile browsing continues to dominate. In February mobile accounted for 55% of hotel website sessions for London hotels.

Properties across the capital also enjoyed a leap of 55% in on-line revenue up from an average of £104,571 in January to £162,698 in February.
