Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI) expanded its portfolio with 45 additional independent luxury-level meetings- and incentives-focused properties outside North America. These new members bring ALHI’s total to more than 250 hotels in 63 countries.

“We are excited about the addition of 45 new ALHI properties in sought-after destinations around the world,” said Associated Luxury Hotels’ Chief Sales Officer Mark Sergot. “In the luxury space, customers continue to want customized and unique experiences with exceptional service levels. They want hotel and resort partners to be creative and assist in offering one-of-a-kind programs.”

Among the new member properties are the 679-room Tivoli Hotel in Copenhagen; the 394-room Royal Garden Hotel in London; Harbour Grand Kowloon, featuring 553 rooms, in Hong Kong; the 314-room Panamericano Buenos Aires; and the 236-room Hotel Oro Verde Guayaquil in Ecuador.

“More and more, North American-based customers are looking for new and different options, especially for incentive programs. Eastern Europe and the Middle East are gaining in popularity as travel infrastructure is put in place,” Sergot said. “Secondary markets in the United States are also getting a fresh look as product offerings and local attractions mature.”

In North America, Sergot shared that ALHI is continuing to add to its portfolio.

“We are pleased to welcome several Omni Hotels as ALHI members, including the Omni La Costa, north of San Diego; Omni Shoreham in Washington, D.C.; Omni Scottsdale at Montelucia in Arizona; and the soon-to-open Omni Louisville.

ALHI’s members offer 138,500 guest rooms and over 10 million square feet of meeting space.
