For some time, hotel owners and developers have been asking for a 5-star brand that sits at the affordable end of the market to keep pace with customers' expectations and increasing costs of developments. The growth prospects remain very positive with 12 more hotels under development and more anticipated as quality independent hotels seek the security of international hotel companies such as Accor.”
