Owner, developer and asset manager of branded three- and four-star hotels in the Middle East and Australia, Action Hotels, is gearing up for the roll-out of further properties, to be managed by AccorHotels.
Speaking of the developments in the pipeline was founder and chairman, Action Hotels, HE Sheikh Mubarak A M Al Sabah at the White Palace with chairman and CEO, AccorHotels, Sebastien Bazin, in the presence of the French Ambassador, HE Christian Nakhle.
Al Sabah stated that six hotels are currently operating, with another five due to open across Accor’s ibis, Novotel and Mercure brands including new hotels in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sohar. These are scheduled to reach completion by the end of this year.
“We are delighted to welcome Mr. Bazin and the Accor delegation, in the presence of His Excellency, the French Ambassador, to discuss further expanding our already solid relationship beyond our 11 hotels.”
“There is strong demand for economy and mid-economy hotels throughout the region, a trend we recognised way back in 2005 and stand committed to today. Indeed, we founded Action Hotels to address this very clear market opportunity to develop midscale and economy hotels in the Middle East, whilst others focused on the luxury end of the market,” he concluded.
