Frasers Hospitality expands in Europe

Frasers Hospitality, the hospitality arm of Frasers Centrepoint, is expanding into two new European markets as part of its aggressive growth plans.

The global hospitality operator has launched its first property in the city of Frankfurt - the 153-unit Capri by Fraser, Frankfurt, which joins six other properties under the company's Capri brand of hotel residences.

It had also earlier opened a 97-unit Capri by Fraser, Barcelona in Spain.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The group announced in a statement that it will open a similar property in Berlin, Germany as well, which is expected to be completed by 2017. And plans for more projects are under way.

The Europe launch will precede the addition of another 10 Capri by Fraser properties in Asia-Pacific over the next four years. This is set to bump up the group's total number of Capri by Fraser hotel residences to 17, with more than 3,500 units, including those in the pipeline.
