Accor has launched a new “Apartments & Villas” site, one dedicated to villa rentals, apartment rental sand extended-stay hotel properties.
The new site has more than 50,000 accommodations available, putting the hotel giant into an increasingly competitive market for home rentals.
“Apartments & Villas site reflects our ongoing commitment to innovation as consumer travel needs evolve, and allows all of our clients to discover an incredible collection of accommodations around the world on one digital platform, as well as to live an exceptional travel experience: the space, comfort and privacy of a home for a weekend, a vacation or working in a new setting, allied to the convenience of hotel services from Accor brands and to the best of loyalty advantages”, said Yassine Hachem, Vice President for Guest Digital Product at Accor.
The program also includes the company’s portfolio of branded residences.
So far, Accor Apartments and Villas’ Caribbean offering is focused in Puerto Rico and Mexico, with a number of villas at the Fairmont Mayakoba on the Caribbean coast of Mexico and at the Fairmont San Juan in Puerto Rico’s capital.
“The launch of the Apartments & Villas website demonstrates our ambition to develop offers and solutions tailored to the extended stay hotel segment,” said Jeff Tisdall, Senior Vice President Development, Residential and Extended Stay at Accor. “The launch is an important milestone for our investment partners, guests and private residence owners, and further reinforces Accor’s leadership position in extended stay hotel and branded residence segments.”
Accor’s move follows fellow hotel giant Marriott’s high-profile launch of its own villa rental platform last year.
