Yotel announces global expansion plans

More than 3,000 cabins are scheduled to open by 2018, including Yotel hotels in Singapore, Paris, Miami, San Francisco and a second property in New York City.

Yotel has announced global expansion plans targeting key city centers and international airports in Asia, Europe and North America. More than 3,000 cabins are scheduled to open by 2018, including Yotel hotels in Singapore, Paris, Miami, San Francisco and a second property in New York City.

Yotel's next 3 locations to open in the U.S. are in Miami, Brooklyn's Williamsburg and San Francisco's Mid-Market neighborhood. New York-based real estate developer Synapse Capital is developing a 100,000 square foot mixed-use project along with 110 Yotel cabins in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Together with IFA Hotels & Resorts and its partners, Synapse is also transforming the Grant Building at 1095 Market Street in San Francisco into a 200-cabin Yotel hotel. Yotel Miami is a 250-cabin hotel being developed by Aria Development Group in partnership with Aqarat in the heart of Downtown Miami.

In Europe, Yotel is developing its fourth airport hotel at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, which is due to open in mid-2016. The following year, Yotel will open its first property in Asia with the launch of Yotel Singapore on ultra-prime Orchard Road. Developed by Singapore-listed Hong Fok Corporation Limited, Yotel Singapore will feature 600 state-of-the-art cabins located at the heart of the city-state's busiest commercial strip and steps away from all major tourist attractions.

In addition, Yotel is in advanced negotiations to operate new properties in Boston, Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle and Toronto. Outside North America, the company is actively pursuing opportunities in Europe and Asia Pacific, in particular Dubai, London, Milan, Barcelona, Sydney and Hong Kong.

Jason Brown, CDO at Yotel declared : "One third of the company's future growth is anticipated to take place within airport locations, with the other two-thirds planned for city centers. We primarily operate through long term management contracts, but we can also entertain alternative deal structures such as leases, particularly in airport environments. Our preference is to remain asset light, investing in our operating capabilities and regional platforms to deliver unique experiences to our guests and superior returns to our owners."

Yotel already has airport hotels in London and Amsterdam and a property in New York.
