Accor looks to better year with strong pipeline of new openings

Sofitel Adelaide set to open in 2021.

Accor is betting on a brighter year ahead with a host of new hotel openings in the region planned for 2021.

Among the new hotels are the launch of the Mövenpick brand in Australia with the Mövenpick Hotel Hobart to open in January. Sofitel Adelaide is on track to open in mid-2021 marking the first internationally recognised five-star hotel to be built in Adelaide in 30 years.

Two new Sebel properties are opening in Melbourne and Wellington, while a new-build luxury boutique MGallery hotel, The Porter House Hotel Sydney, will open in late 2021.

“With the domestic leisure market growing, Australia and New Zealand are well positioned to capture both domestic travellers and returning international travellers when the borders reopen,” said Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath.

“The new properties represent the best of Accor, in the most desirable destinations and offer an exceptional choice for guests.”
