Associated Luxury Hotels has significantly expanded its global footprint, its member hotels and resorts, and its worldwide sales, marketing and hospitality services with the acquisition of Frankfurt, Germany-based Worldhotels .
Headquartered in Orlando, Florida , Associated Luxury Hotels owns and operates Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI), the leading independent Global Sales Organization serving the North American meetings and incentive marketplace for 30 years.
Associated Luxury Hotels’ Chairman David Gabri said the company will operate ALHI and Worldhotels as separate divisions .
Both portfolios feature luxury-level and upper-upscale city center business hotels, exquisite resorts, historic grand landmark hotels, lifestyle hotels and boutique hotels around the world.
“Bringing together these two highly respected companies enables us to become a significant, full-service luxury ‘soft brand’ solution to serve the evolving needs of our valued customers, and our exceptional memberships of independent hotels, resorts and independent brands, plus their management and ownership groups,” Gabri said.
Associated Luxury Hotels’ Chief Commercial Officer, Tom Santora, is also now Worldhotels’ Executive Chairman, with Geoff Andrew continuing as Worldhotels’ Chief Executive Officer in Frankfurt.
