PARIS, 19 January 2022: Many of the world’s most popular destinations – such as London, Doha, and Moscow – will welcome multiple new Accor hotels this year as the group adds more than 300 hotels to its portfolio this year.
In the lifestyle segments of the global hospitality industry, Accor will continue to expand. Standout openings across this category include the first Mondrian in China, Hong Kong Kowloon, a 324-room property overlooking the harbour; the inaugural Maison Delano Paris in the ultra-chic 8th Arrondissement just steps away from the fabled Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré; TRIBE Phnom Penh Post Office Square which will bring a bold design to Cambodia’s hotel scene, and Mama Shelter Dubai a larger-than-life Mama that embodies the idea of a resort in the heart of the city with apartments, pools and an outdoor cinema.
One of the most anticipated openings of the year is Raffles
London at The OWO. This architectural masterpiece, located at the historic Old
War Office in Whitehall. The property will have 120 rooms and suites, 85
branded residences and 11 destination restaurants and bars.
The strength of Accor’s network across Europe continues to
be bolstered with recent and upcoming openings, such as Sofitel Barcelona
Skipper, Mercure Amsterdam North, ibis Styles St. Margrethen Switzerland,
Mercure Hotel President in Lecce, Italy and MGallery Cagliari Palazzo Tirso,
Italy. In 2022, Accor will welcome new additions in its home base, Paris,
including MGallery Issy-les-Moulineaux Domaine de la Reine Margot and Paris
In North America, the continent’s first Raffles later this
year. Raffles Boston Back Bay Hotel & Residences, located in the city’s
prestigious Back Bay neighbourhood, is a 35-story building featuring 146
residences, 147 guestrooms, and six food and beverage venues, including a sky
bar and speakeasy. The striking three-story sky lobby is set to be the first of
its kind in Boston.
The Middle East is another stronghold for Accor,
particularly with the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Accor has been selected as the
official provider of accommodation for visitors of the event, providing team
members to manage and operate more than 60,000 rooms in apartments and villas
across the Gulf Arab state.
The group will also broaden its Rixos portfolio in Qatar and
in the region overall with the upcoming Rixos Doha Qetaifan, Rixos Obhur Jeddah
in Saudi Arabia and Rixos Jewel of the Creek in Dubai, UAE. Accor will also
introduce many stunning new properties throughout the region, including the new
Raffles Doha and sister hotel Fairmont Doha, Banyan Tree AlUla in the Asher
Valley of Saudi Arabia, and Fairmont La Marina Rabat-Salé.
Another important market for Accor in 2022 is Russia.
Domestic tourism continues to grow, particularly among Russian travellers who
are accustomed to international services and high standards of vacation
experiences. Accor is adding to its portfolio across the country with a diverse
