Virginia-based management company Interstate Hotels & Resorts is adding 12 new hotels to its international portfolio, including the company’s first entry into France. Interstate will manage the hotels under long-term agreements for owner, development and lease partner Borealis Hotel Group, a Dutch hotel company with continued expansion potential for the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France and additional Western European countries.

“We voluntarily selected Interstate to manage our hotels because we look for strong partners that bring key core competencies and thus optimize the overall strength of the business,” Bart van de Kamp, CEO of Borealis Hotel Group, said in a statement. “Importantly, Interstate has proven to be competent, owner-centric managers who think of the hotels as their own.”

The properties—including the currently open 314-guestroom Ibis Budget Amsterdam City South and the 63-guestroom Hotel Indigo The Hague-Palace Noordeinde, with the other properties scheduled to open this year and next—have a total of 1,732 select-service, midscale and upscale guestrooms under IHG, AccorHotels, Marriott and Hilton brand franchises in the Netherlands, Belgium and France.
