UK: The Cheshunt Marriott Hotel in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, will be operated by Focus Hotels and converted to join Delta Hotels by Marriott.

Focus will oversee a multi-million pound investment in the 140-bed property, refurbishing all of the bedrooms, meeting rooms and public areas.

Work is due to start this month with a scheduled reopening for late spring 2022.

Lynn Hood, chief operating officer at Focus Hotels, said: “We are delighted to welcome Delta Hotels by Marriott to our portfolio of hotels alongside our Hilton and Mercure estate and independent hotels portfolio.

“We look forward to being ready to welcome the corporate market as it re-emerges and gets back to work to this newly refurbished Delta by Marriott hotel.’’ 

Peter Cashman, CEO of Focus Hotels, said: “We view winning this contract as a strong vote of confidence in Focus Hotel management and our commitment towards creating owner value and a sustainable business platform. This is a significant step in our post-pandemic plans for future growth and expansion.

“More than 90 per cent of businesses managed by Focus made a good operating profit in 2020 followed by continued growth in RGI results throughout 2021. Average group-wide RGI for the second half of 2021 exceeded 2019 pre-pandemic results at 115 which has given us the firm foundations from which to move forward and grow further. Every new brand we are able to work with brings the opportunity to provide us with greater diversity and additional insights which can all contribute towards our ambitions to expand even further,” he added.

Focus Hotels has over 1700 rooms across the UK under management – both branded and unbranded. The group is currently working on opportunities in major cities and leisure destinations.
