We operate hotels in three different ways – as a franchisor, a manager and on an owned and leased basis.
Our business model focuses on managing and franchising hotels, whilst our business partners own the bricks and mortar.
This is the largest part of our business: 4,096 hotels operate under franchise agreements.
We manage 735 hotels worldwide.
We own 9* hotels worldwide (less than 1% of our portfolio).
