Spanish Leisure Hotel Chains - October 2009

Unlike most other countries, the majority of hotel chains in Spain were founded to serve holidaymakers in resort locations, especially the Balearic and Canary islands. Given Spain’s extensive warm-water coastline in close proximity to the key outbound travel markets of Northern Europe, it is not surprising that leisure hotels dominate the country’s lodging stock. According to data from the Spanish National Statistics Institute, the four most important tourism regions in Spain – Andalusia, the Balearic Islands, Catalonia and the Canary Islands – together account for two thirds of the country’s total hotel beds.
