LONDON—The European hotel industry posted mixed results in year-over-year metrics when reported in U.S. dollars, euros and British pounds for January 2013, according to data compiled by STR Global.

“In euros, Europe’s first month of the new year posted negative RevPAR results, being driven by a decline in ADR”, said Elizabeth Randall Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “Western Europe was the only region in Europe to post positive RevPAR growth, with an increase in occupancy of 1.4 percent and ADR of 0.3 percent in euros. Germany is one of the main contributors within Western Europe to achieve positive results during the first month of 2013, achieving a RevPAR growth of 7.2 percent in euros”.
