AccorHotels may bring global hotel brands 25Hours and Banyan Tree to India

French hospitality group AccorHotels is looking at opportunities to bring global hotel chains 25Hours and Banyan Tree into India even as the company focuses on strengthening its existing brands in the country, said a top executive.

The company, which is considered Europe’s largest hotel chain, recently made strategic investments into the two hospitality firms. In an interview with Mint, AccorHotels’ chief marketing and distribution officer (Asia Pacific region) Graham Wilson said bringing new brands is in line with the company’s plan to have around 80 hotels in India by 2020.

The company currently operates 46 hotels in the country under 10 brands including Sofitel, Novotel and Ibis in major cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. “The more brands we can have the better. The more choice you can offer to consumers, the more sales you will receive,” Wilson said. Globally, AccorHotels owns and runs around 20 brands across 92 countries. In the recent past, the company has been on an acquisition spree.
