Despite a challenging first half of the year for the global hospitality industry, hotel giant Accor has signed 14 new properties in Europe during the last six months.
These include four in the UK and Ireland, six in Belgium and four in the Netherlands.
The new signings will collectively add well over 2,000 rooms to the company’s portfolio in the region.
The four signings in the UK and Ireland include the first Fairmont in Ireland, one Tribe, one Mercure and an ibis Budget.
In the luxury division, the historic Carton House is the newly signed Fairmont Hotel situated just outside Dublin.
Accor has also signed Tribe Manchester Airport, a 412-room franchised new build hotel.
This is the second Tribe hotel to be signed in northern Europe this year and marks the expansion of an existing relationship with the owners of ibis Budget Luton and the ibis Budget projects at Manchester and Heathrow Airport.
Tribe Manchester Airport is set to open in 2022.
The first half of the year also saw ten new signings in Benelux, with six important signings in Belgium.
In the first quarter, Belgium welcomed a new brand to northern Europe with the signing of an 83-room Novotel Living, an extended stay brand, at Brussels Airport.
