Not all due to the independence referendum

You may also have mentioned in your article (as a clear cause of this decrease in the hotel RevPar in Barcelona) that there had also been a terrible terrorist attack in Barcelona at the end of August and that all TV stations worldwide had shown on 1st October 2017 how Spanish security forces were using disproportionate violence on peaceful Catalan citizens trying to vote. Saying that the decrease of RevPar was initiated by the independence referendum shows a kind of lack of understanding on the issue and very biased unfair point of view. Luckily, this negative trend on Barcelona's hotel RevPar has already been inverted.
