Although the market is effervescent as regards the emergence of new new hotels, Bucharest did not draw big names of the hotel industry last year. At local level, rumours have come up about the arrival of chains such as Starwood Hotels or Hyatt, or the expansion of some which are already present, such as Marriott (which has been trying for the last 2-3 years the expansion in Romania with brands such as Ritz Carlton, Renaissance or Courtyard), Hilton (which targeted the 3 and 4 star segment) or InterContinental (which is already present with two brands).
''It was a year with good results, but probably, the last one without problems for hotels owners, considering the noteworthy shrinkage between demand and offer, mainly allowing for a rise in offer,'' Lucian Marinescu, consultant with Trend Hospitality, one of the most important players on the relevant market, told daily Business Standard. The company is represented at local level by hotel chain Wyndham.
This year, emerging on the five-star hotel market, but not at full throttle yet, was Radisson SAS hotel, the biggest unit in terms of the number of rooms.
