In spite of the economic downturn, occupancy levels in Moscow’s hotels will continue to rise in 2013, according to a recent report by Cushman & Wakefield.

With some of the city’s hotels ending 2012 with occupancy in excess of 75%, David Jenkins, partner and head of hospitality at Cushman & Wakefield, Russia, said: "Occupancies continue to grow and we believe that 2013 will see a continuation of the positive trends seen in the past two years."
