STR Global releases May 2009 European Hotel Review

Being the least worst is never a high accolade, but in the face of a very tough market the performance of Germany’s main cities is commendable. The May 2009 edition of the European Hotel Review, published by STR Global, the leading provider of market information to the world’s hotel industry, shows German cities taking the top five positions for annual change in revenue per available room (RevPAR) for the year-to-May 2009.

The European Hotel Review provides a detailed analysis of hotel performance in terms of occupancy, average daily rate and RevPAR at the global, national and market levels. Of the 40 markets sampled in the report, which represent 2,245 hotels and more than 400,500 guestrooms, the top five performing cities are all German: Cologne, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin.
