Yotel outlines expansion plans

1 Dec 2015 by GrahamSmith
Yotel has announced plans to open 12 new hotels by 2018. Among these are two airport hotels at Paris Charles de Gaulle and Singapore Changi, due to open in 2016 and 2018 respectively and properties in San Francisco, Boston, Miami, Williamsburg (New York), Singapore and Dubai. The budget group is also opening a hotel in Manchester (see news, November 2013) and plans "significant investments in western Europe with new locations to be announced shortly in both London and Geneva". Hubert Viriot, Yotel CEO, said: "We have big intentions for our brand over the next 12 to 18 months, looking to grow the number of rooms under management by over 250 per cent by 2018 and I am confident that by working closely with our experienced partners and investors, we will enter new markets and continue to cater to the modern, tech-savvy global traveller of today." Yotel currently has four properties open - in New York and at London Gatwick, London Heathrow and Amsterdam Schiphol airports. To read a review of Yotel New York, click here.
