    Worldhotels has added 54 new affiliates to its global portfolio, which is an increase of 12 per cent on the number of hotels admitted in the previous year.In line with its ambitious expansion plans, Worldhotels plans to add a further 100 properties worldwide in 2010.

    The hotel group particularly expanded its portfolio in the UK with the addition of the renowned brand City Inn, which has properties in the UK business hubs London, Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and Bristol. London’s Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington also joined the group.

    New properties in Europe include additional hotels in several key destinations, such as Budapest, Rotterdam, Berlin and Helsinki.

    Further hotels of particular note include the brand new Grand Majestic Plaza in Prague, the historic Park Hotel in Amsterdam, the Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam, and the recently opened Atlantic Congress Hotel in Essen, the ‘European Capital of Culture 2010’.

    In the US, Worldhotels added 12 new businesses and has a new presence in a variety of destinations, including Dallas, Atlanta and Chicago. The group also added its first hotels in Vermont and the Virgin Islands. One of the most recent new hotels in the US is the Dana Hotel & Spa in Chicago.

    New hotels complement the Asia-Pacific portfolio of the group, with 15 being added. Among the recent additions are six new hotels in China, among which is the landmark hotel Grand Central Hotel Shanghai, four in Australia, three in India, and one each in Japan and Korea.

    Worldhotels, vice president of hotel development, Ingo Gürges said: “Unlike with any other provider, WORLDHOTELS affiliate hotels commit to a full-service, one-stop solution, which is more convenient and cost-efficient than contracting such a wide range of required services from various suppliers.”
