Wednesday, December 09, 2015
We are excited to share the news that FRHI Hotels & Resorts and our three leading brands, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Raffles Hotels & Resorts, and Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, will soon join the AccorHotels group. AccorHotels is a global leader in the travel industry with a diverse portfolio located in 94 countries, with over 3,800 properties and 20 recognized luxury, midscale and economy brands including Sofitel, Pullman, MGallery, Grand Mercure, and Novotel.
This is certainly an exciting next chapter for our brands as FRHI’s unrivalled collection of iconic hotel assets, extensive experience in the luxury market, and sizeable North American footprint combined with AccorHotels’ global operating platform, innovative digital strategies, diverse stable of brands, and international exposure will only lead to new levels of success.
Until the transaction closes, expected in mid-2016, FRHI and AccorHotels will continue to operate as separate companies and manage their business affairs as usual.
