2013 Hotel Companies World Ranking

News MKG has released its list of the most famous hotel brands in the world. The list includes companies with the biggest number of hotels around the world, proves Anglo-Saxon supremacy, but at the same time features some adjustments like the appearance of a Chinese company as one of the key players on the global hotel market.

Rapid growth is one of the key features for the companies in the list. Major players expand their presence on all markets not only to get new guestrooms and expand their portfolios, but also to get a complete geographic coverage and presence in different segments, attracting loyal customers of different income levels.

This year there are no changes in the top of the list. InterContinental Hotels Group is again an undisputed leader. The British company is mostly geared up by its Holiday Inn Express brand and its fast development. This year IHG also plans to rebrand its Holiday Inn brand. In 2012 the company’s portfolio contained 4480 hotels, and this year the hotelier will increase their number to 4602 hotels with 675 982 guestrooms in total. The second place is again occupied by Hilton Worldwide. The American hotelier lags behind IHG, and has less than 24,000 guestrooms in portfolio. The last year’s third hotel company, Wyndham Hotel Group, lost one position to Marriott International. In 2013 the portfolio of Marriott International will reach 3672 hotels (638793 guestrooms in total). Wyndham, in its turn, keeps focusing mostly on its national territory (the US) and still has to find ways to increase its presence outside the United States efficiently. The fifth place is occupied by Choice Hotels, and the sixth place is occupied by Accor that features the biggest decrease in the total number of rooms. In 2013, the company will lose 15.3% of its portfolio mostly because of the Motel 6 chain loss. Other hotel companies in the top ten rank are Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Best Western, Home Inns, and Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
