AccorHotels and sbe Entertainment Group ("sbe") have signed a Letter of Intent and entered into exclusive negotiations for AccorHotels to acquire a 50% stake in sbe, further illustrating AccorHotels’s strategy to expand its offering in the luxury lifestyle hospitality segment.
Through this partnership, AccorHotels will expand its current geographic footprint in gateway North American cities such Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas and New York with iconic hotels. Additionally, sbe’s core millennial customer base will gain access to the AccorHotels platform.
