AccorHotels has reached a major milestone with the opening of its 1000th hotel in the Asia Pacific region.
The launch of Pullman Tokyo Tamachi in Japan also marks the group’s regional 200,000 room milestone.
“For the first half of 2018, 72 percent of global room openings for the group were in Asia Pacific.,” said Michael Issenberg, CEO Asia-Pacific AccorHotels.
In the past three years, AccorHotels has doubled its size in the Asia Pacific, opening hotels at an unprecedented rate. However, the hotel giant has plans to open properties even more frequently.
“We currently open on average a new hotel in the Asia Pacific every three days, but our goal is to move this to a new hotel every day by 2020 and one hotel per day globally.”
The recent acquisition of Mantra Group and its 138 hotels in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and Bali for $1.2 billion helped AccorHotels reach its 1000 hotel milestone.
Comparatively, Hilton Hotels & Resorts opened just its 100th Asia-Pacific property earlier this year.
