AccorHotels, a French hospitality company, has announced the launch of two of its flagship brands in Nigeria.
The multinational company said it has signed agreements with TomHawksworth Limited, a property and real estate developer for the building of MGallery and Pullman – both located in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Olivier Granet, chief executive officer, AccorHotels, Middle East and Africa (MEA) said both brands were likely to open in late 2020.
“Since opening our very first hotel in Nigeria almost 20 years ago, we’ve believed in the long term potential of the destination, having witnessed incredible growth as one of the largest economies in Africa,” he said in a statement.
“As the market continues to evolve, there is a need for international brands and it is our commitment to fill this gap with two of our leading upper upscale brands – MGallery and Pullman.”
Adekola Ogundayo, managing director, TomHawksworth Limited, said: “The signing of these two landmark agreements reflects our vision and mission to become one of the leading property developers and managers in Nigeria.
“We look forward to working with AccorHotels to develop and manage what will undoubtedly become flagship hotels.”
“The 100-room MGallery and 204-room Pullman, both situated in the prime neighbourhood of Ikoyi, Lagos, are in close proximity to the business area of Victoria Island,” the statement read.
“The MGallery Ikoyi benefits from easy access to the upmarket residential neighbourhood of Ikoyi and Banana Island.
“The Pullman Ikoyi, located on Ojora Road, enjoys prime visibility and direct access to destinations such as the Lekki area.”
