Accor, the world’s leading hotel operator, becomes AccorHotels and adopts a new signature.
With its new name, AccorHotels, the Group proudly upholds its hospitality business. It aims at increasing the clout and visibility of AccorHotels, which is both an institutional and a commercial brand, by connecting it to its digital platform AccorHotels.com. It also intends to place the brand at the center of its ecosystem of hotel brands.
In order for the Group brand and the hotel brands to cement their reciprocal bonds, AccorHotels will endorse all the brands’ communications and provide them with the credibility, assurance and expertise of an international leader. Likewise, the brand portfolio will always feature in AccorHotels’ communications to boost the appeal of both the Group and its digital platform.
The Group also has a new simple, striking and universal signature that emphasizes on its desire to federate: Feel Welcome.
This new identity is already visible on the Group’s space in the Village at Roland Garros, of which AccorHotels is an official partner.
Sébastien Bazin, AccorHotels Chairman and CEO, declared “Today, our Group changes and loudly and clearly proclaims its desire to go further, faster. Accor becomes AccorHotels and proudly re-assumes its role as a pioneer hotelier that never stops innovating and surprising, at the cutting edge of digital technology, but while remaining a hotelier, first and foremost. The Feel Welcome promise is a strong commitment to all our audiences and enriches the bond between the Group and its brands.”
