Travelers crossing “the pond” for their vacations will find Europe crowded and expensive this summer.

  • London, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt were also expected to clock healthy gains in average hotel rates this year, for both business and leisure travelers;
  • Henry Harteveldt, President of Atmosphere Research Group, cautioned that travelers could ultimately be more price-sensitive than hotel revenue managers are forecasting.
