All hotels share their trust in Worldhotels' distinctive business model, which offers independent hotels and local hotel groups the exposure and commercial strength of an international chain, whilst leaving them full operational freedom. In addition to that, the hotels rely on Worldhotels' global sales office footprint to help them expand their international reach.
"We are excited to welcome these high-quality additions into our group", says Geoff Andrew, Chief Operating Officer at Worldhotels. "We are strategically developing our portfolio to add new key destinations and reinforce destinations with high potential."
