Accor Hotels is the perfect example of the most talked about success stories in the hotel industry of the contemporary times. It was in 1967 when the first hotel of the company (Novotel brand) was established in the outskirts of the French city of Lille. Six years later, Sphere S.A. holding which is the predecessor of the modern day Accor was founded. During this time, the first Ibis hotels were simultaneously opened and the Mercury hotels were created. The Novotel brand was further expanded into the American market in 1979. In 1982, Novotel – Sieh became the sole owner of the Sofitels hotel chain. In the following year, the group officially changed its name and has officially become known as Accor Corporation.

What are the trademarks of Accor hotels which enabled it to become known in the hotel industry? Here are its most distinguished features:

  • Parking that is convenient
  • Top of the line service
  • Brands available to all levels of the modern hotel industry (Presently, Accor hotels can be of varying price niches depending on the segment where it belongs)
