Robert Crook, Interstate’s Managing Director for the UK, said: “We are delighted to announce that we have secured these 13 signed pipeline hotels, significantly strengthening our presence and offering in the UK. This is a very exciting time for Interstate Hotels & Resorts Europe, as the UK continues to be a strong growth area for the company.
“This success is a clear testimony to our truly independent status and the fact we put our owners’ needs, requirements and achievements first, committing whole-heartedly to the running of each individual business and creating tailored management solutions to improve owners’ profitability.
“It is also clear that the momentum in the UK market is gearing towards third party management as the preferred vehicle for managing branded hotels and we expect to capitalise on this over the coming months with more exciting announcements in the pipeline.”
