The ten largest hotel brands are on the move: with more than 10,000 new hotel rooms Hilton has the strongest growth, which is even higher as the growth of the industry leader Holiday Inn/Holiday Inn Express with just 7,700 new hotel rooms. This data has been revealed by a current analysis of TOPHOTELPROJECTS (http://www.tophotelprojects.com), the worldwide leading provider of global b2b hotel data.
Holiday Inn/Holiday Inn Express by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) remains at the first place of the ten largest hotel brands in the world with a large distance. Follower Best Western grows as quick as Holiday Inn - 4,700 hotel rooms arise internationally but with currently 311,000 existing hotel rooms Best Western is clearly behind the first place.
Hilton, the large and strong brand by the same named US hotel company (which will be brought back to the stock exchange in 2014) is going to pass the brand Comfort Inns & Suites by Choice Hotel and it will reduce the distance to Marriott. Hilton Worldwide is the second largest hotel group so far and therefore is ahead of Marriott International and just a bit behind IHG. A second hotel brand by Hilton which is growing also very strong is Hampton Inn by Hilton.
