Choice Hotels Adds Five More Hotels To Its UK And Ireland Portfolio

ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Choice Hotels Europe, part of Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, today announced five more properties, located in The Midlands and Hampshire in England and in Dublin, Ireland, have been added to its portfolio.

The Midlands now benefits from two more Choice Hotels brand properties with the addition of Quality Hotel Wolverhampton, formerly The Connaught Hotel, and Quality Hotel Birmingham Airport/NEC, re-opening its doors for business under new management. This brings the number of Choice Hotels properties in the region to seven.

The 60-room Quality Hotel Wolverhampton is a short walk from Wolverhampton City Centre and offers easy access to major roads and highways. Quality Hotel Birmingham Airport/NEC is now owned and operated by Hospitality First, under a franchise agreement with Choice Hotels Europe. The hotel is a short distance from Birmingham International Airport, Birmingham National Exhibition Centre and the City Centre. 

The Makeney Hall Hotel is now Clarion Collection Hotel Makeney Hall. The magnificent, 46-room Victorian country mansion is situated in the heart of Derbyshire and set in six acres of landscaped gardens. Close to East Midlands Airport, the property is ideally situated for local business destinations and the nearby Peak District National Park.

Clarion Collection Hotel Winchester Royal dates back to the 16th century. This distinctive property is located near the center of the historic town and close to major roadways, the Hampshire business destinations and the scenic South Hampshire Coast.

Both the Winchester and Makeney properties are part of the strategic agreement signed with Akkeron Hotels Group Limited earlier this year, which has so far resulted in seven Akkeron hotels operating under Choice Hotels franchise agreements in the UK.
