Accor has added five more Pullman hotels to its
ever growing network in Asia. The five hotels are located in the
key growth markets of India and China, and take the development
commitments for the Pullman brand in Asia to 22 hotels, in
addition to the 12 operating Pullman hotels in the region.
Michael Issenberg – Chairman and Chief Operating
Officer, Accor Asia Pacific said, “The Pullman brand is
experiencing a major spike in development within Asia. Whilst we
expected the brand to establish a foothold in the Asian region,
we did not anticipate the speed with which this would happen.
The tightening of credit markets and the slowing tourism arrivals
has hotel owners and developers looking for contemporary hotel
brands that appeal to the modern traveler, priced and
distributed efficiently and offer a high quality product without
the clutter of more traditional 5 star hotel brands. The
Pullman brand is fitting this demand nicely.”
