The Luxury & Premium segment outperformed the Economy and Midscale segments, reflecting the deep desire among the Chinese population to travel again.
During full-year 2020, Accor opened 205 hotels, i.e., 28,942 rooms, confirming the appeal of the Group’s brands to hotel owners. At year-end 2020, the Group had a hotel portfolio of 753,344 rooms (5,139 hotels) and a pipeline of 212,000 rooms (1,209 hotels), of which 73% in emerging markets.

Sébastien Bazin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Accor, said:“In 2020, the hotel industry navigated an unprecedented crisis. In response to the pandemic, Accor, its employees and its owners made an extraordinary effort across the globe to support those most affected. The Group also continued with the rollout of large-scale initiatives to plan ahead for the economic recovery and consolidate its leadership position in lifestyle.
In 2021, while the vaccine is ensuring a gradual rebound in tourism—largely driven by leisure guests—Accor is ideally positioned to benefit from the recovery and press ahead with its roadmap.”
