Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.

The 10-year-old brand is expected to enter the UK market in 2019 with Mama Shelter Shoreditch, rebranded from the RE Hotel London Shoreditch. The property was purchased earlier this year by an affiliate of Crosstree Real Estate Partners. The 201-room Mama Shelter Dubai (with 80 residences) is scheduled to open in 2020 as part of a partnership with AccorHotels and Khama Group of Investment. The company also is planning to debut in Lisbon, Portugal, in the coming years.

The Mama Shelter portfolio comprises six hotels with 677 guestrooms. 

In 2014, AccorHotels bought a 35-percent stake in Mama Shelter to help speed up the brand's international expansion.
