Property firm deal will boost Cendant expansion
US hotel chain Cendant has struck a deal with a West Midlands-based property and investment company as part of its plans to extend its presence in the UK. Cendant, franchisor of the Days hotel and Days Inn brands, announced plans at the end of January to expand in the UK.
Hotels have recently opened in South Ruislip, Middlesex, and in Leicester. Further properties in Haverhill, Sussex, and Nuneaton, Warwickshire, are due to open later this year.
The property firm, Opus Land, will find sites and sort out the planning and development issues for the expansion, which could see the chain growing from its current 30 inns and hotels to 120 by the end of 2007.
