Choice Hotels expands its portfolio in Turkey with an agreement to develop a new Clarion hotel. Following recent market entries in Spain, Latin America and Saudi Arabia, this new contract with the operating company EOS Gayrimenkul Geliştirme İnsaat Taahüt Ve Tic. A.Ş. aligns with the company's global strategy.
The new Clarion hotel is located on the main street from Istanbul into Tekirdag and has an unobstructed ocean view. It will offer 100 to 110 rooms, several conference facilities, and a banquet hall. The hotel will also cater to the emerging region around Tekirdağ, whose city center is just five minutes away. The economically important site of Çerkezköy, which hosts subsidiaries of numerous international corporations, can also be reached within half an hour.
Choice Hotels International, Inc. franchises approximately 6,200 hotels, representing more than 499,000 rooms, in the United States and more than 30 other countries and territories. As of December 31, 2012, 394 hotels, representing more than 31,000 rooms, were under construction, awaiting conversion or approved for development in the United States.
