Golden Tulip returns to US market

Golden Tulip Hospitality has announced the preparation of an initiative to re-enter the US market after a period of expansion into other international markets, including Asia Pacific and North West Africa. Golden Tulip Hospitality president and CEO Hans Kennedie commented: “Golden Tulip has embarked in 2006 into a large expansion phase entering several new markets through joint ventures and hotel management agreements. During the past year, Golden Tulip entered the Asian-Pacific region, the Asia Sub-Continent and North West Africa, and now we are ready to enter North America. We strongly believe that the combination of the tools and services Golden Tulip provides, the recovery of the US lodging markets, and the introduction of a unique Golden Tulip approach to the branding relationship will help us and our partners realise the successful introduction, development, growth and expansion of the brand in North America.” Golden Tulip currently franchises one hotel in The Unites States – the Golden Tulip Bethesda Court Hotel located near Washington in Bethesda, Maryland. President of The Hospitality Consulting Group Patrick Culligan was retained by Golden Tulip to provide a better understanding of the US lodging market. “Golden Tulip is easily one of the largest, fastest growing and most important global hotel companies that many people have never heard of in the US,” he said.
