Louvre Hotels to bring Campanile brand to Asia

Louvre Hotels Group (LHG) is accelerating its expansion in China and Southeast Asia following its acquisition by Shanghai-based Jin Jiang Holdings International in March of this year. Reports are the group has been granted a US$2.8 billion line of credit by Chinese bank ICBC over a three-year term to accelerate its development strategy through organic development, innovations, renovations of existing hotels or external growth.

With this support, Louvre will launch reportedly Campanile-branded economy hotels in China, with the first opening in Shanghai planned for later this year. They have a target of 500 hotels in the next five years. It is also planning to convert a JJ hotel in Shanghai into the Golden Tulip brand.
