Based on the figures released by Travel and Events Queensland, the tourism industry in Brisbane has slowed down in the year ending March 2014. During this time, the number of visitors, domestic and international combined, dropped -1.2% to 5,999,000. This explains why the demand for hotels in Brisbane has declined. Room nights occupancy dropped by -1.1% to 1,213,789 while room occupancy dropped -2.6%. Meanwhile, accommodation providers made just over $256 million which was -0.11% less compared to the data gathered a year ago.

The number of hotels in Brisbane and other accommodation actually increased +3.0% to 34 offering visitors with 1,596,089 available nights for the entire year.
