The European hotel industry posted mixed results in year-over-year metrics when reported in U.S. dollars, Euros and British pounds for July 2014, according to data compiled by STR Global.

“Europe’s supply increased 0.9 percent, on a 12-month-moving-average basis, while demand is increasing at a healthy 3.2 percent”, said Elizabeth Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “As a result, the region is achieving occupancy levels of 68.2 percent. In July 2014, Europe demand was over 100 million rooms sold for the second month this year.

“It’s is reassuring to see Athens improving from not only an occupancy perspective (+21.9 percent) but also from a RevPAR perspective (+32.1 percent) in year-to-date results”, said Winkle. “Glasgow, host of the 2014 Commonwealth Games from 23 July through 3 August, greatly benefited from the games evidenced by strong performance increases across the board. The market’s occupancy for July was 87.5 percent, as its ADR jumped by +58.9 percent and RevPAR increased by 73.5 percent”.
