Report Overview

Paris-based AccorHotels is arguably pursuing one of the most aggressive, innovative, and unique strategies in the entire hospitality industry. The company went from being a relatively small European hotel company of 482,000 rooms and 14 brands in 2014 to 684,000 rooms across 32 different hotel or short-term rental brands today through both organic and inorganic growth. In this report, we focus on two aspects of AccorHotels’ growth strategy: its approach to acquisitions and investments, and the sale of a majority stake in AccorInvest to become an asset-light company. Clearly, AccorHotels isn’t just thinking about hotel rooms and putting “heads in beds,” but how to best position itself as an all-in-one travel experience platform for consumers pre-, during, and post-stay.
