But Hyatt Hotels Corporation's most high-profile acquisition in recent years came in 2018 with the acquisition of Two Roads hospitality. While the hotel group, less than Two years old at the time, seemed a bit of a fledgling, don't ignore the luxury brand line of Two Roads Hospitality.

At the time, Two Roads Hospitality's top five brands were joie de Vivre, Thompson Hotels, Tommie, Destination Hotels and Alila.

 With Balinese Villa Uruwatu cliff cage gawking pavilion and popular around the world, Alila, of course, need not say much. After joining Hyatt, the Hyatt Hotels Corporation also acquired the world's top resort brand.

The other four brands also have their own heritage, and all have quite wonderful performance.

02 Intercontinental Hotels Group

After Hyatt Hotels Corporation's three acquisitions, let's move on to Intercontinental, which has been booming in recent years.

In fact, the InterContinental Hotels Group acquisition tradition is well established, with the Holiday Inn brand giving IHG a solid mid-market position.

Holiday Inn Great Sign and IHG's three acquisitions in recent years have made IHG even more successful, not only in the luxury hotel sector, which has been in the void until now, it is also making inroads into the vacation and boutique hotel sectors.

One of the first names to be picked up by IHG was Kimpton, the Granddaddy of the boutique hotel industry, which originated 40 years ago. Through the fashion design, change the traditional hotel boring and boring Kimpton Hotel brand, can be said to change the course of World Hotel history by one's own efforts.

After joining IHG in 2015, Kimpton's unique tone has been further enhanced and developed, the design first, luxury without pride, people-oriented, Morning Wake & Amp Social time, pet-friendliness, creative meetings, and health in hand are some of Kimpton's most visible signs.

In March 2018, the intercontinental Group and Regent Capital Taipei Jinghua Group after the completion of the handover, the rapid regent will be invited to the intercontinental group's long-vacant luxury throne.

Although the regent, a luxury hotel brand born in 1970, had only six semicolons left after years of exile. But that didn't Stop IHG from lavishing a lot of love on the late-blooming beauty: a year later, IHG embarked on a massive rebranding program for Regent, returning with a brand new logo and a brand-specific color.

Intercontinental Corporation has proved to be the right choice for regent, which moved into Lujiazui in June 2020 to take over the original four seasons Pudong It will also upgrade Hong Kong's famous intercontinental to Regent and add a luxury resort palace to regent in the first half of this year: Richina Island Regent Hotel.

In addition, regent has been signing many contracts in China recently. First, it plans to build the world's tallest regent in Shenzhen Bay, and then it takes over The Bund's classic hotel, the seagull hotel, in Shanghai, at the confluence of the Huangpu River and Suzhou Creek, the legend of regent is re-enacted, creating the age of two shops in the city.

 Although the regent acquisition cost only $39 million, but the intercontinental group on Regent spent the effort is how money can be measured? Regent's far-reaching impact on the continent can not be summed up in $39m. The last“Big move” took place in February 2019. IHG Group kept the promise made by Keith Barr, the new CEO at that time. After completing the acquisition of regent, IHG spent a staggering US $300 million to acquire six good, completed“IHG intends to buy two luxury brands to enrich the product line” plan.


The joining of these three big brands really helped intercontinental group to quickly get a solid reinforcement in both the depth and the cutting-edge aspects of the brand line.

03 Accor Hotel Group

The major hotel groups for their own luxury brand can be said to be spared no effort. Accor hotel group is no exception, but the Accor Group's own top luxury brand, the legend of Sofitel, a total of only five semicolons.

So Accor launched plan b-buy, buy, buy-to enrich its line of luxury brands through acquisitions. In 2016, Accor bought FRHI hotels for $2.9 billion.

Previously owned by Qatar Investment Authority and Saudi Arabian Kingdom Holding Company, all three brands are well-known in the hotel industry.

Born in Singapore in 1887, the Raffles Hotel is one of the oldest luxury hotel brands in the world, and one of the first Raffles Hotel Hotels in the Far East, Raffles Raffles Hotel.

In Dubai, the Seychelles, Paris, Hainan and other destinations with the classic flashy semicolon Raffles Hotel, is not to be underestimated with a superb taste of luxury brands.

Another luxury giant, the Fairmont Hotel, which originated in Canada in 1907, owns several legendary Castle Hotels in North and loves to transform the city's classic landmarks and protected buildings into hotels, has numerous fascinating collection-level hotels.

The last Swiss hotel is the origin of high mountains and high quality of life in Switzerland, all the Swiss hotel semicolon has a unique Swiss style.

Accor's acquisition not only harvested two luxury brands that were popular all over the world and filled the gap of its top luxury brands, but also acquired the hotels that FRHI group was operating at that time, thus better consolidate the asia-pacific region and North 's hotel strength.

Of course, Accor's recent acquisitions have not been limited to this.

This cross-border hotel is the ancestor of the brand, in the Egyptian pyramids, the Red Sea region has an enviable hotel layout, Accor Group is also to consolidate its hotel strength in Africa and the Middle East.

Accor actually bought a 50% stake in Orient Express, then part of French rail operator SNCF, in October 2017.

The tie-up between the two French tourism giants is a way for Yago González to carve out a niche for luxury travel outside the hotel sector.

Accor also bought a 30% stake in German hotel group 25hours Hotels in 2016, a sign of Accor's foray into boutique Hotels.
