Europe Hotel Sector Enjoys Slight Increases in Occupancy, Room Rates in November

According to STR Global, the European hotel industry posted positive results in year-over-year metrics when reported in U.S. dollars, euros and British pounds for November 2011.

Year-over-year, November 2011 figures for Europe (U.S. dollars, euros and British pounds):


"European hotel performance continued to hold on with slight increases in occupancy and average room rate compared to November 2010", said Elizabeth Randall, managing director of STR Global. "Despite a weakening in the wider economic environment, demand is still up, growing 4.4 percent last month. With the year coming to close, European hoteliers reported 6.0-percent RevPAR growth for the 11 months this year when measured in euros, almost equally driven by occupancy and ADR increases. The second half definitely showed softening and weaker year-on-year growth resulting from the stronger growth levels we saw in the latter half of 2010".
