Associated Luxury Hotels' Chairman, David Gabri, said the company will operate ALHI and Worldhotels as separate divisions.

Both portfolios feature luxury-level and upper-upscale city center business hotels, exquisite resorts, historic grand landmark hotels, lifestyle hotels and boutique hotels around the world.

"Bringing together these two highly respected companies enables us to become a significant, full-service luxury 'soft brand' solution to serve the evolving needs of our valued customers, and our exceptional memberships of independent hotels, resorts and independent brands, plus their management and ownership groups," said Gabri.

Worldhotels remains focused on serving individual business travelers, leisure travelers, meeting groups, and providing loyalty solutions for its 350 member hotels and resorts, offering 75,000 rooms, in 65 countries worldwide.

 ALHI will continue concentrating on the North American meetings, incentives and conventions marketplace for its membership of over 250 luxury-level independent hotels and resorts worldwide totaling 138,500 rooms; plus, their Global Alliance partnership including 23 luxury cruise ships, and Destination Management Companies in over 100 locations worldwide.

 ALHI has 20 Global Sales offices across North America, staffed by 65 global sales professionals, and will add ALHI GSO sales offices in Europe in 2017. Worldhotels has 35 sales offices worldwide and 140 staff.

Associated Luxury Hotels' Chief Commercial Officer, Tom Santora, is also now Worldhotels' Executive Chairman, with Geoff Andrew continuing as Worldhotels' Chief Executive Officer in Frankfurt.

The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
