AccorHotels has opened its 1000th in Asia Pacific, the Pullman Tokyo Tamachi, and is aiming to open one new property in the region every two days by 2020.
“We currently open, on average, a new hotel in Asia Pacific every three days, but our goal is to move this to a new hotel every second day by 2020 and one hotel per day globally,” said Michael Issenberg, CEO Asia-Pacific AccorHotels.
“For the first half of 2018, 72% of global room openings for the group were in Asia Pacific.”
Issenberg said in the past three years, AccorHotels’ Asia Pacific network has doubled in size, “thanks to a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions” such as this year’s purchase of Mantra Group, which added 19,000 rooms.
“For the first half of 2018, 72% of global room openings for the group were in Asia Pacific,” said Issenberg
AccorHotels now has more than 200,000 rooms in Asia Pacific and its brands include Raffles, Orient Express, Fairmont, Banyan Tree, Delano, Mondrian, SLS, Swissôtel, and Mövenpick.
