New opening of the Quality Hotel Vienna in Austria

Choice Hotels EMEA and RIMC Hotels & Resorts open Quality Hotel Vienna in Austria

The Quality Hotel Vienna has 118 rooms and underpins Choice Hotels EMEA's expansion course in Europe. The property is currently being adapted to the brand's new Quality standards as part of a Property Improvement Plan and opens today, November 21, 2022. PKF hospitality group found the new operators and acted as advisor in the acquisition of the hotel until the franchise agreement was signed.

Amsterdam, November 21, 2022. Choice Hotels EMEA and RIMC Hotels and Resorts Group will open Quality Hotel Wien today, November 21, 2022, on Schönbrunner Schloßstraße, in close proximity to the popular Schönbrunn Palace. The 118-room property is centrally located in Austria's capital and is currently being upgraded to the recently refreshed Quality brand standards of Choice Hotels EMEA.

Choice Hotels EMEA and RIMC Hotels and Resorts Group have already worked together successfully in the past and are now entering into a new 20-year franchise agreement. PKF hospitality group acted as advisor in the search for an operator and found RIMC Hotels and Resorts Group as the new operator for the former Austria Trend Hotel Zoo in Vienna.

The new agreement and the strategic location in Austria underpin the expansion course of Choice Hotels EMEA and hotel operator RIMC. Choice Hotels EMEA is repositioning its Comfort, Clarion, Quality and, in the future, Sleep brands in the European market and is thus well on its way to becoming the leading midscale franchisor in EMEA. RIMC Hotels & Resorts Group, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, is one of the leading international hotel companies. Over the past 30 years, the group has already completed 200 hotel projects in Germany and abroad and is planning further projects in the German and international markets.

Choice Hotels EMEA is 100 percent focused on franchisees, providing tools, systems and services that increase revenue, drive growth and focus on the loyalty program. The international franchise hotel chain's value proposition is to offer high-quality brands that can be implemented flexibly, within specified design guidelines, and adapted to hotel type and location.

Quality Hotel Vienna targets value-oriented business and leisure travelers who appreciate modern design, high standards of hygiene and attentive service. Quality guests value a great hotel location and want, among other things, a comfortable bed and a modern bathroom. Warm and friendly service makes them feel at home.

The contemporary design of Quality Hotels encourages guests to relax while traveling, spend time at the hotel and socialize. Currently, the Vienna property is receiving a facelift according to Quality brand design guidelines with fresh and modern spaces enhanced by thoughtful local touches.

The Vienna hotel market has recovered significantly after the pandemic, with the meetings and events, leisure and business travel segments in particular experiencing a resurgence.

"We are very pleased to break new ground in the European hotel industry through this strategic collaboration with RIMC Hotels and Resorts Group. With our first joint property in Austria, we are demonstrating that EMEA is an important growth market for us, despite challenging times for the hospitality industry. Guests will benefit most from our collaboration; they can look forward to a Quality Hotel in Vienna that meets the latest demands and standards," says Jonathan Mills, CEO of Choice Hotels.

"We are looking forward to the collaboration with Choice Hotels EMEA and know that we have a trustworthy partner at our side. We are also not completely unfamiliar with the Vienna market and look forward to operating at this location," said Marek N. Riegger, CEO of RIMC Hotels & Resorts Group.

"We are very pleased to have successfully completed our search for an operator. Visitors to Vienna can look forward to a Quality Hotel that RIMC Hotels & Resorts Group and Choice Hotels EMEA will successfully position in the market together," said Stefan Catic, Head of Operator Search at PKF Hospitality Group.

The opening of Quality Hotel Vienna does not mark the end of Choice Hotels EMEA's expansion. The group continues to actively seek new properties, both legacy and new build, in the midscale hotel segment and is also targeting further openings in Austria.
