Accor, Marriott the largest hotel companies in the Middle East, STR data


Accor and Marriott International maintain the top room counts among parent companies operating in in the Middle East, according to STR.

As part of the STR 500, the company released the top 50 companies and brands in the Middle East during Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC) in Ras Al Khaimah.

Accor (34,327 hotel rooms) as well as Marriott International (33,757) were the only two companies with at least 30,000 rooms in the region as of 28 February 2019. Using that same cutoff date, the two largest brands in the Middle East are Millennium Hotels and Resorts (8,852) and Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts (8,454), which is also owned by Accor.

“Supply remains a hot topic in the Middle East when looking at both the recent impact on performance as well as how much new inventory continues to be developed as part of ‘mega events’ and economic initiatives,” said Philip Wooller, STR’s area director for the Middle East & Africa. “The growing presence of so many major global companies and brands speaks to the importance of the Middle East as developers identify growth opportunities in this sector of real estate.” Thus, the region will certainly be key on the global development landscape for years to come.
