The revenue from Accor's hotels during the first half of 2010 totalled €2,723 million, up 5.1% on the same period last year.
Accor said the growth had been led by higher occupancy rates.
The hotel group's upscale and midscale properties, which includes brands such as Sofitel and Novotel, saw a growth in revenue of 6.7%, compared to H1 2009, and a ruse in average prices.
Revenue for Accor's economy segment, which includes Ibis and Etap, saw a lower rate of growth, at 5.5% during the first six months of the year, and room rates stabilised.
Accor's budget brand in the states, Motel 6, has fared worse, however, with a fall in revenue of 5% between January and June, compared to the same period last year.
The revenue per available room at Motel 6 rose by 3.1% in June, the first increase since June 2008.
The group plans to make €45 million in cost savings this year, and says it has achieved 50% of that goal.
In 2009, Accor made €87 million in savings.
Despite the cost cutting programme, the hotel group has opened 93 hotels this year, and plans to open a further 107 before the end of 2010.
