Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 30 June 2009

The European hotel industry posted mixed year-on-year results when reported in US$, Euros and British Pounds for May 2009.

 According to data compiled by STR Global, figures for occupancy, average daily rate and revenue per available room ranged from double-digit losses to single-digit gains, depending on the market and the currency used for comparison.

“Europe’s troubles can be found in the fall of average room rates,” said James Chappell, managing director of STR Global. “In U.S. dollar and Euro terms, the region reports the highest drops in ADR for the month and year-to-date May compared to Asia Pacific, the Americas and Middle East / Africa.”

“For May, of the 40 markets tracked on our European Hotel Review, only four increased their average rates in local currency terms: Frankfurt, Tel Aviv and the northern European markets of Helsinki and Malmo”, Chappell added. “The trade fairs helped Frankfurt to achieve the highest ADR increase of 22% for the 40 markets tracked.”

Year-on-year May 2009 figures for Europe (US$, Euros and British Pounds):

  Europe % change
Occupancy 64% - 9.7%
ADR (US$) $137.54 - 20.4%
ADR (Euros) €97.24 - 12.5%
ADR (GBP) £84.99 - 2.5%
RevPAR (US$) $88.01 - 28.1%
