TOPHOTELCHAINS: 10 largest chains operate 4,000 hotels – largest project with 6,000 rooms
The Chinese hotel market is still dominated by Chinese hotel chains – not US hotel groups are running the show on the highly competitive market in the Middle Kingdom. The largest hotel chain with 848 properties is the Shanghai based company Home Inns & Hotels Management. The ten largest hotel chains in China operate in total approximately 4,100 hotels. These are the facts derived from TOPHOTELCHAINS, the leading online database of all global hotel chains and headquarter contact data.
All in all there are 46 hotel chains with a total of more than 4,400 hotels present in China. Despite this large number it is still a developing and growing market place. In Europe TOPHOTELCHAINS counts 709 different hotel chains and groups with more than 12,000 properties. In the USA 330 hotel chains have 61,000 hotels under their umbrella.
According to TOPHOTELPROJECTS, the leading market research company for upcoming hotel projects around the world (www.tophotelprojects.com), there are currently 599 upcoming top hotel projects with more than 180,000 rooms under construction or in the planning.
