Langham on the prowl for Australia hotels

Hong Kong-based Langham Hotels will reportedly more than triple its size to 100 hotels within the next five years, with an Australian resort on the Queensland coast and a property in Perth in its sights, reports The Australian.

Langham Hotels's new CEO, American hotel executive, Bob Warman, also recently announced the $30-million upgrade of the Langham Hotel in Sydney, which was acquired by the group in 2012.

“We want to be in locations which may not make sense for our parent company, (but) we need to be in those locations,” Warman told The Australian. “We would love to be in Perth.”
