“Today marks a strategic step forward for our expansion plans in Asia," Stephen Burt, chairman of Travelodge Hotels Asia, said in a statement. "Travelodge Kowloon will form a key part of the Travelodge chain in Asia as the brand expands into other key capital cities such as Singapore, Bangkok, Tokyo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta.”

“Travelodge’s cost-efficient yet robust distribution platform and the appreciation for practical solutions when working with owners gives us confidence that this partnership will improve the performance of our hotel in the midst of a rather competitive hotel market in Hong Kong,” Edwin Leong, chairman of Tai Hung Fai Group, added.
