Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 17 September 2009

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.
