Covered in this Report
This report provides an overview and outlook for the hotel sector of the Low Countries, which can be equated to the Benelux region, including Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. As opposed to hotel markets further south in Europe, hotels in the Low Countries depend heavily on business travel and MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions). Almost half of total lodging capacity in the Low Countries is in the Netherlands and hotel development is particularly concentrated there, especially in Amsterdam, which is a particularly hot market, as demand is rising continually, but supply is being crimped by a municipal ban on the construction of new hotels. The Amsterdam market is also a hotbed of innovation with a number of new alternative lodging concepts, including serviced apartments, hostels and hybrid student hotels.
In terms of chain penetration, the presence of the major international chains, with the exception of AccorHotels and the consortium Best Western, is relatively insignificant. Meanwhile, there are half a dozen small to medium-sized Dutch chains but nothing of any note in Belgium or Luxembourg.
This report looks at the following areas:
- What has been the recent trend in arrivals and overnights in hotels in the Low Countries?
- What is the breakdown of hotel capacity in the Low Countries by country/region?
- Which are the main regional hotel groups in the Low Countries and what is the nature of their hotel portfolios?
- How extensive is the presence of foreign hotel chains in the Low Countries?
- What has been the trend in hotel and alternative lodging development in the Low Countries?
- What has been the trend in hotel transactions in the Netherlands and Amsterdam?
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Jessica Kelly, a leading analyst in the Travel sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Amsterdam remains the epicentre of hotel development in the Low Countries, with some 50 hotels in the pipeline, though a brake has been put on future projects due to a recent ban on new hotel development. Luxembourg looks set for a significant expansion of its hotel capacity in the coming years, spurred on, in part, by relocating financial-sector executives from London due to Brexit.
