Casablanca on the other hand has also seen a drop in performance, albeit more marginal than for Marrakech. Occupancy fell slightly and ADR was flat in local currency terms.
Casablanca may not experience the same recovery situation. The fear of terrorist attacks combined with economic uncertainty and the lack of attractive new supply will push the occupancy and rates down, producing a 6.9% drop in REVPAR. Yet, the additional income from the various inhouse F&B facilities will help keep the values at a stable level of US$135,000 per room, although still lower than the pre-crisis level. The 186-room Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca has opened, marking Four Season Hotels and Resorts' second property in Morocco.
